    sleight of hand......... rookie

    decent sleight, but you forgot your angles at the last second of the video, like ronchi said, the switched out pieces are visible. if your seated, just lap the paper with your turn over motion and bam, no trace.

    i cant figure it out plz tell me tha trick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS IS NOT AN INSTRUCTABLE! This has been done to get clics for the youtube video.

    chill out. its a cool trick!

    no, clics dont concern me. I couldnt figure out how to put the video with the instructable. Im not that great with the computer. I'll post the instructable part of it

    Well, I will be waiting. Thanks.

    Caution now, this is a classic sleight-of-hand magic trick, which dave has done himself. It could do with an explanation as to how it's performed (I think we're invited to go through it carefully and spot it), but it doesn't warrant caps.


    just some friendly criticism: you should make an instructable showing how to make it.

    simple explination, look just to the left of the "unharmed" paper in the last second of the video, you can see the "exchanged" torn paper tucked between his fingers.
