Tornado by Justin Flom and Rick Lax (Tutorial)

"VERY practical and SUPER clean" -Mat Franco, Winner of America's Got Talent

For me, the Holy Grail of magic has always been this: A MIRACLE that FITS IN MY WALLET, features a VISUAL MOMENT, and takes place IN THE SPECTATOR’S HAND.

You guys, I found the Holy Grail. It’s called TORNADO.

Well, Justin Flom and I found it together. It happened five months ago, during a late-night jam session. Since that night, we’ve been working closely with Penguin Magic and the United States Playing Card Company to bring this KILLER PIECE OF MAGIC to all of you.

It’s ready.

Here’s the trick: You tear up a 4 and put a corner of the card in your friend’s hand. Then you take a step back and tear up a 7. You hold a corner of the 7 between your fingertips…and VISUALLY CHANGE IT INTO THE CORNER OF THE 4. Then your friend opens up her hand…AND SHE’S GOT THE 7.

VERY IMPORTANT POINT: This trick ONLY USES TWO CARDS. No extra pieces, no fancy sleight-of-hand. THE CARDS DO ALL THE WORK FOR YOU. And when you’re done with the trick, YOUR FRIEND CAN KEEP THE TORN CARD PIECES as a souvenir of this IMPOSSIBLE HAPPENING.

I know, I know—this one sounds too good to be true.

It’s not.

This one really does live up to the hype. Once you start performing Tornado, you’ll see it for yourself. You’ll see it in the faces of your friends, of your spectators. And you’ll want to see it again and again and again.
