The ambitious card routine is a miracle of magic, tried and tested and proven.
The routine uses a myriad of moves to create an end result of a [signed] card repeatedly placed into the center of the pack and then rising to the top, apparently unstoppable.
The basic plot allows much creativity on the part of the magician: depending on the sleights and knowledge you have you can make the card suddenly disappear and reappear on the top of the deck, fly from the spectators hands, appear in your shoe, tear it, bend it, break it ----- and still it rises to the occasion.
Each part of the routine leaves the spectator more breathless.
The routine, however, MUST be performed with showmanship. It is this key teaching that Brad excels at and will make sure you take away from the DVD.
