Duane Laflin created this trick many years ago. Since then, he has used it extensively. It is simple, yet strong magically and great fun!
Instructions and Routine:
Announce that it is time to play a magic game show called "IS THERE MAGIC IN THE AIR?"! Invite two volunteers on stage to play.
Each volunteer takes a turn pulling a small card with a number on it from a special Force Bag. The large number panels which correspond to the chosen small number cards are put on the wooden display frame.
The magician then shows that the small number cards which were not chosen, correspond to pictures of a hippo, a tiger and a monkey - all amazing animals, but not magical.
Next, the display is turned around for the audience to see what the volunteers chose: It is a picture of a rabbit coming out of a hat! Clearly, there IS magic in the air!
