Anytime. Anywhere. One of the all-time best impromptu miracles EVER INVENTED!

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/4033

Lonnie Chevrie is a full-time working professional magician. The only rule is, it has to be a strong effect. The fact that this reputation-maker is impromptu just makes it that much more amazing.

1. Borrow a dollar bill.
2. Clearly RIP your finger through it.
3. Unfold it and show that it's completely unharmed.

One of the fastest, and most visually stunning illusions you can always do.

Once you learn this trick, you'll ALWAYS feel ready for a show-down.

Just got this, seconds after having watched the explanation, I was doing it almost perfectly. It's fantastic, definitely not a stand alone piece though.

Errrr.. I'm don't know what to think about this.. There is a DVD called "Infusion" by Andrew Mayne and it is EXACTLY the same thing (well, in clear through, you fold the bill a bit different but not a lot since there is a handling in Infusion which is the SAME thing) so I hope they got it covered because it looks and works (I'm pretty sure) the same way..

Here is a video for Infusion : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWI1DrP-yoQ

Looks great. I recall this was released with another effect called Clean Thru on this DVD: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/2141

It is written on the description of Lonnie's DVD :

"Q: Is this based on any previous work?
A: While Lonnie conceived of Clean Thru / Clear Thru independently, there have been other effects involving penetration of bills that came before this one. The history of our art matters, so we want to credit them here.
1996: The Tokyo Penetration by Rue Susato. Published in the Looking Glass Spring 1996 issue. Two bills penetrate through one another.
Andrew Mayne: Ghost Bills
Andrew Mayne: Infusion
David Acker, in his book "Natural Selections"

Everything is good so Smile

I found a couple of reviews that compare this version to Andrew Mayne's versions:

Looks pretty clear to me. And most demo videos fool the heck out of me.

Thanks!

For 5 bucks, this is just one of those things that I think every magician needs to know.
Get it while it's still in the Coolbox. You won't regret it.

Been doing this for a couple years already due to Andrew Mayne....it's really a great illusion, but nothing new.

Lonnie's version has been out for a few years too. Nice impromptu illusion.

'Clean thru' is also good. I've been carrying a pre-folded dollar bill since I first learned it.

I'm pretty sure Lonnie put this out before Mayne. In fact, I think Mayne credits Lonnie...

Just looking at the two videos Lonnie's is more visual.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

Lonnie goes over this in his Penguin Live lecture, which is full of other great ideas and routines. Worth the extra $25 for this and a whole lot more!
