Edit for rambling: Just skip down to the bottom for the video, the first three paragraphs are boring.

Hey Café, I've been lurking on these forums for years now, just never say much. I have that generic boring story of "learning my first trick at a really young age" .. "bothering my mom with all my new tricks" and all the other stories that we all know and love. Fast forward 20 years and a lot of bad decisions, and you get me! Bad jokes aside, magic has been a serious hobby of mine for the past year and a half now. I've seen a few different color changes since I started really learning, but I obviously haven't seen even %1 of what's out there.

Earlier this morning, I was toying with an idea I had a long time ago. The problem in the past was that I had the idea, but could never execute the move. So this morning, I was working on my invisible pass while on the toilet(hopefully not to crude; I think we've all been here before ;) ), and I remembered the idea I once had, and was able to do the move! So now that I can somewhat do it, I'm pretty convinced someone else has stumbled upon it to!

I'll link the video at the bottom. It shows two variations, one with cover and one without cover. These were my first takes (I had to re upload the video to add the no cover idea) and it's not very good to be honest. If any of you can identify the trick as someone else's, please send me in the right direction so I can learn it properly. If it's somehow something new, I'm sure there's a way to improve it! It should be pretty obvious how I'm doing it, but I think it could look even better with more thought and practice applied.

It's an unlisted Youtube video:

I haven't seen that before, looks amazing. I'll fully admit, I am fooled :)

You underestimate yourself. I honestly have no idea how you did that! :wow:

I'm afraid the solution to this is just too obvious...it's magic!

Seriously, I have no clue and there's no tells of anything dirty going on. It looks great!

If that's legit, it's really good visually....the right hand not moving is a great convincer.

If this is real than submit it to ellusionist and make some money.

Watched this again and I wish the video had a better frame rate because that makes me suspicious of video trickery. I started to challenge myself on how I would create the effect but not sure if its going to work properly. Still stumped.
