Yesterday I was at a hip hop concert. After the show I sat backstage with them and started to do some magic. These guys are tough, a lot of them from the bad parts of Amsterdam. So one guy who signed a card dared me to make his card appear in HIS pocket. Around this time everyone was surrounding me, and the heat was on his pocket. I simply dealt his card, placed an indifferent in his hand, palmed off his card, fanned the cards in his face, placed the card in his pocket and I was done.

The card he looked at turned out to be 'in his hand.' I gave him the deck to shuffle and meanwhile took his wallet out of his pocket. Ah man, I couldn't wait for the reaction of those guys. He looked in the deck for his card, couldn't find it and went to his pocket, found the card. Everybody started screaming and pushing him around.

After everyone calmed down, he told me that he was from the bad parts of Amsterdam and nobody ever comes near his pockets, and congratuled me to be the first one. I told him to be more careful on the streets and gave his wallet back. He screamed "What!" and the whole crowd started cheering and screaming again. After that we drank a lot of champagne. Yeah!

The part I'm glad about is you didn't get hurt.

Wow, was he wearing baggy pants or something? It must have been hard to get his wallet out without him feeling something.

Great job though :).
