I prefer the Kevin King's "Money Morph" for bill switches. I'll have to see if that works with Greg's routine.

Cameron, thanks to you I bought this. You know what's a "worker" and I appreciate your advice.

I think my use of the borrowed bill makes it a bit more magical as it's "their" bill doing the changes.

But..it's just in the idea stage. Their bill has to be switched out and I have to see how/if that will work.....but...the dollar side of Greg's bill is reversed imaged. No one will notice uless you pointed it out. Maybe that can be used as an advantage.

What if in the folding/switching you say "first we have to turn your bill inside out". Unfold and show them the wrting , etc. is backwards. I think that would be quite magical by itself.

Christopher, maybe you could borrow their dollar, explaining how you travel the world on a dollar a day you place it in your wallet. Say thanks, tomorrow I'm going to ....(wherever) get a couple of laughs then say "seriously, here's what I mean" then go into the effect now that you've switched the bill.
At the end, put it back in your wallet, then say "I guess you may want your bill back so you can try to travel like me"....or something to that effect. You take the bill back out and give it to them.
Either using a switch wallet, himber etc. - or just your regular wallet would work.
Or you don't even need to do the wallet part - just fold their borrowed bill in half (to match yours in your pocket) - go to put it in and pretend to walk away, stop and laugh, take out the gimmick and go into the effect.
Any of this may work as long as the borrowed bill is not marked or torn etc which would get noticed.
Just my thoughts on it as I have it ordered as well and should receive it this week.

Tell them that you travel the world for a $1. And you will teach the spectator how to do it. You ask to borrow a bill, and take out your wallet. Now you could say 'See, with just your $1 (Place it folded into your wallet), I can travel...as far as my house', start to place the wallet away and then stop and laugh, tell them you will show them what you really mean, and go into the routine. I am going to Greg's lecture tomorrow, so I will see how he does it live Smile

Those are good idea guys. Makes the switch easy as I don't want to expose the /multi color side of the gimmick ( that's what I'm working on with the TT )

I think everyone will have a lot of fun with Greg's effect!!

Can this be worked by starting or finishing with a UK note?

Yes, Greg started with a $1, then did all the changes, before finally making it a £20 that he handed out for examination, I have two now as I like this so much!

So I guess once you have have done the changes with the foriegn affair bill, you just do a standard TT switch to the UK note....?

I'm thinking of getting this but I don't know the premise of changing $1(which is already weird considering I'm using Euros) to all those bills then ending with Euro bill when a Euro "appeared" already during the changing process. Any thoughts?

Well, you can make the gaff yourself, from Greg's DVD 'In Action 3', and it is also in the Switch book if I remember rightly. It won't be made out of the same paper obviously, but it is the method Greg used for a long time. This way you can make whatever currencies appear in whatever order you like when you make it up.

And Matt, you are correct, the change into the hundred at the end, or £20 as I use etc uses a TT to end completely clean. Now, an idea I had was to print up some flyers/business cards in this style on paper and load this into the TT. Now I explain that as a Magician I can travel to any country I like. Watch, I can go from America, to...change to all the different countries, and end with the flyer, saying 'But always remember where you saw this first', and you can hand out your business card/flyer with all your information on
