Wow! Max just showed me his new One, Two, Punch!. I have to say its a great routine. Two single dollar bills morph into a two dollar bill. Not only does it look cool "and quite off the beaten track of say the Mis-Made bill or One to Hundred" The serial numbers on the two single dollar bills are recorded and added up. When the bill morphs into the two dollar bill the serial number matches the total of the two singles, what a kicker. Only Max would think of something so devious. On my wish list!

Great work again Max!!!!

Check it out:

This is such a great effect! I just saw it for the first time and it went on the list of things I MUST have. I won't describe it because RenzIII did a great job of that. Don't believe that it's awesome? Then get in touch with Max and see it first hand! Amazing as always Max, keep 'em coming!!!!!

The serial numbers adding up to the new total is a nice idea, but surely only if you borrow the two original notes?

Laymen will know you've somehow done a switch, even if it is very clean and magical looking.
And so for the numbers to add up isn't really a kicker ending.

Like I said if you could (seemingly) borrow the initial two 1 dollar notes and then have an impossible giveaway at the end this would be amazing.

Other than the bit with the serial numbers, how is this different from Michael Ammar's Two Dollar Bill Tear (from Encore 3)?

Not sure why you think laymen will know there is a switch if you use your own bills as opposed to their own bills? I think you are way over analyzing it. I have some of Max's works. They are top notch. This looks great

Because you are showing them it change into a two dollar bill.

When you do a bill switch do you think the people watching actually believe you have changed their bill into a higher denomination?

I agree with David. They're going to know it's a switch either way.

But if you're using borrowed bills then the serial number thing is amazing. If you're using your OWN bills, then the serial number thing is almost completely unimportant. it would be like making your license plate appear in a flash of fire AND predicting your own license plate number. The second part is essentially a "so what."

My Magician thoughts say the he bills have to be borrowed, otherwise it's 'so what'.

But people can be funny at what they will react to. Has anyone, that has zero affiliation to the producer, performed this that can share what happened?

So I just oreded this from Max. Switch no Switch who gives a rats a__! If done properly the layman will have no idea. Produce the two bills from your fire wallet. So much attention will be on the wallet, they will forger about the bills. Use a money clip and take them from there. Ask the audience who has singles walk around take a few put them in your pocket and say thanks if I do this all night I'll be rich then switch. The effect is totally different, but it's like in UltraGum you need to make a switch and people get blown away by that. Then for the finale as the two bills become one new bill is no different than any bill switch, but then the kicker is the serial numbers add up.

I plan on using this with my supreme serial killer. The great thing about Max is that he will give you so many ideas to put this effect to good use.
