Looks beautiful!

is there a cut on the video at 3.47?
a switch perhaps?

is the signed key with the sticker really the spectator key?

would be interesting to see a review and some answers.

No switch, and yes, the signed key with the sticker is really the spectator's key.

Without any switch or slide of hand? seems impossible, because I know every
possible method.

if it is really the spectator key that bends then this looks like real magic.

Notice how the hand holding the key, the "hot" hand, goes out of frame while the other hand pulls up the sleeve of the hot hand's arm. Just an observation, not a critique.

At 0:42 he pretends to stumble into the giant yellow chair. As he straightens the chair, he steals the key.

Does this come with plans to construct the giant yellow chair?

There is a third way and I suspect it occurred exactly when Larry Davidson observed.

Here is a Google translation of a French review:


"Description of the effect
The magician borrows a key to a spectator, it is signed with a sticker to authenticate the beginning to the end of the routine. The magician holds the key right at your fingertips, rub it and it permeates the small movements that gives the impression that the key is wrong, then it continues to move his finger, the key looks and everyone can see that she is well and truly twisted.

It is then placed in the hand of the spectator who must tighten his hands to flatten. When the latter opens his hands, he finds that the key has resumed its original form and is perfectly intact. It can of course consider all since it is his key.

S strong points
Pleasing visual effect.
Fully examinable.
Borrowed and signed key. Weaknesses
Some inconsistencies.
Packaging disappointing.
Difficulty
No major difficulty, if not a diversion of attention.

We believe
First, as its name, the effect as described seems too improbable: a key borrowed, on which the sticker is visible signed from beginning to end, writhing under the eyes of the spectators and then went intact. Yet this is the routine that you can make Canolle Jerome with his impromptu real key bending. The great advantage of this routine is obviously being able to borrow a key to an audience which is impossible with other routines. The term impromptu routine is somewhat misleading because the routine is not impromptu. You will need a gimmick (supplied) that you will carry with you to achieve the effect, so we are far from unexpected, unless you consider all the effects of using gimmicks as impromptu. The creator recommends that you retain the gimmick on your key chain so as to be always ready and in this sense and in this sense only, the routine will be impromptu.

The effect itself is relatively easy, be careful in some corners but nothing complicated if everything else is based on the presentation. Another constraint, the effect is not feasible with all types of keys, wrenches ordinary, the most common are therefore usable but other key security without teeth will not fit.

Now evoke the negative points of the routine. Keep the gimmick on your key chain risk to damage some force other keys, such as your car keys for example. The completion of the routine will force you to commit several inconsistencies which will pass mostly unnoticed, but beware the day when you'll uncover. Another significant, the packaging is really very disappointing. I am aware that one buys an effect and not a product, but there are still limits. You will receive a zipped pouch containing a cover image for the tower and a small box containing the gimmick. Nevermind the typo on the title of the tour. And bulk side, the DVD explanation too big to fit in the little bag. When we see that certain merchant of stuff makes great effort at this level, there is really disappointing.

To summarize, if you wish to make a twisting effect without using a fake key, with a high impact while being easy to do, get this article.

If you really want a key routine that truly works in the real world and amazes the spectators leaving them with their own bent signed key look no further than Andrew Gerards Key Accessory.
I have not seen a key routine out there that beats it if performed correctly - trust me!
Cheers,
Paul.

But is it really improptu?
I do not think if there is a gimmick involved.
I like the bending .
in the first part he seems to create the illusion of bending a key or doing this creates leverage for doing a bend?
I am not sure but this movement can conceal the real bending effort.
any ideas?

The gimmick can damage car key if you just hold in your keychain?

Looks smooth and clean.

"if it is really the spectator key that bends then this looks like real magic."

It cannot be that, as the key is straightened at the end. Perfectly unbending a key would be a bigger trick than bending one. This clean looking thing seems to eliminate the pesky part of handing back an unusable key to the participant. Or finding a disposable key among your audience.
