A Brand New and Most Novel Card Trick With More Twists Than a Tornado! Originated by Zane Himself.
This effect starts off as just a regular 'Ambitious Card Routine', but then it gets darn right crazy, but crazy in a good way! A card is selected and placed into the centre of the deck. The magician, (that's you!) then tells the spectator that their chosen card will rise to the top of the deck, but when the top card is turned over, it's not their card! So you say "Well since this card likes to be on top of the deck, we'll use this card instead." The card is signed and unmistakably placed into the centre of the deck. You now ask the spectator to turn over the top card, and 'Success'! To everyone's surprise and amazement, the card has risen to the top of the deck, that is, except for the pips! But get this! It's still the same signed card! But now oddly, with all the pips cut out & missing! Then you comment, that "The pips must still be in the deck somewhere!" No sooner than this is said, the deck is spread face-down and surprisingly, one card is now seen to be face-up in the centre, which proves to be their originally selected card - but now with all the missing pips Fused into it! Amazing! The pips have somehow found the spectators chosen card! But as if that wasn't amazing enough, for the real kicker finish, you say "Actually it was easy for the pips to know which card was yours (dramatic pause) because your card is the only one in the deck with a different coloured back!" The spectator turns over their card and discovers this indeed to be so. Leaving them in a totally Con-Fused state!
