Marc Arthur improves on the appearing hole effect with his debut release, (W)Hole Deck. In his routine, a stick melts through a spectator's selected card, creating an actual hole on the card that they can stick their finger through. The hole then jumps from the selected card onto the rest of the pack, which can also be examined! The (W)Hole Deck resets in seconds and can be performed with any card. It is audience tested and 100% worker friendly.
The versatility of the (W)Hole Deck is demonstrated with the eye-popping routine, Hollow (W)Hole. A boxed pack of cards is hung around the neck by a ribbon that runs through a hole in the entire pack. A spectator selects a card from the bound deck, which is then returned to the box. A balloon is blown up and POP! The spectator's chosen card appears from the box, off the ribbon, its hole completely intact.
In (CH)Angel a card is selected, signed returned to the deck and handed to a spectator. An off-color "angel" piece is shown on both sides. With just a touch, the angel changes. It doesn't just change color, it changes places. The angel is shown to be from the spectator's selected card! They spread the deck themselves and, to their amazement, the off-color angel piece is found "inside" their card.
