Does anyone have presentation/patter ideas for the trick called "Uncuppled" by Howie Schwarzman?

It's really clever, and I admire the method, but I'm not sure how to best present it.

Basically, it's a trick where a rope is threaded on to the handle of a coffee mug. Two spectators hold on to the ends of the rope and the mug is covered with a handkerchief. The magician reaches under the handkerchief and magically removes the coffee cup from the rope.

I saw this advertised, figured it out and made my own version of it (using a slightly different gimmick than the original).

If I do end up adding this to my act I will make it a point to buy the original from Hank Lee because I think that creator's rights should be supported. (Hank Lee owns the rights from Howie Schwarzman.)

But I'm stuck on figuring out what it means. Is there a presentation for it beyond the basic "this coffee mug impossibly penetrates the rope......wow!" sort of presentation?

If anyone wants to see my brief prototype presentation of it on Magic Video Depot, here is the link:


This is a work-in-progress, so don't judge it too harshly.

(NOTE: in the video I posted on MVD, the ends of the rope are never out of view, but in a proper presentation those ends of rope are held securely by the spectators. That did not happen in the little video demo I shot of it, but that is the way it should look.)
