Check this out!

I was reading Hiding the Elephant by jim steinmeyer and in the book he mentions I believe David Devant performing an illusion called the vanishing moth.

Henning brought it back nearly 200 years later for his broadway show... "Merlin".

There is a clip of it at the end of this commercial! Its even cooler because I know how its done! Check it out and I strongly recommend Hiding the Elephant as well.

I was fortunate to see the show AND gt to meet Doug and Debbie Henning as well as Chita Rivera and Nathan Lane after the show!

The Mascot Moth in person was quite awe inspiring!
