I have been playing with the plastic bag now for a couple of days. This was a great idea by Gary. If you have not tried this out with ignition you are really missing some great ideas. Something I have figured out is by using the plastic bag you can start with the key in the bag and show both hands empty prior to doing the effect. The gimmick can be attached to the key through the back of the bag. When ready to do the effect just steal the gimmick off the back. You can't do this with a bill. The plastic bag idea is about as clean as you can get. Once the effect is over the key can be dropped back in the plastic bag and the gimmick reattached and again you can show your hands empty again. You are reset to go again. Great idea by Gary Jones to use the clear plastic bag. So I am sure some of you are thinking why is my key in a plastic bag to begin with. OK you tell them you are going to remove the key through the bottom of the plastic. As you are trying to do this effect you are just stealing the gimmick. Now just say I am not that good so let them remove the key from the bag and you are set to do the effect. They have handled the key and the bag prior to the penetration.

Does anyone know if the (Ignition) key fits Tenyo's T-169 Zone Infinity?

The reactions I get for this effect couldn't be more varied.
for some people it's mind blowing whereas they had to tell their colleagues about it
others don't "feel" it at all, even tough they don't spot the method.
interestingly enough, over time you'll get a feeling to which person this trick appeals more

Here is a routine I really enjoy.

Setup- Take an envelope of your choosing and push a key through the center so that a hole is created all the way through.

When ready to perform, take out the envelope and hold it so that the holes are covered and display it without mentioning it.
Ask to borrow a note, the higher the denomination the better. A credit card or driver license could be borrowed but I would then carry an envelope closer to the size of those items.
Place the note or card in the envelope and proceed by appearing to penetrate the key through the envelope. Be sure to line the gimmick up with the holes in the envelope.
Make a quick adjustment if need be before displaying it to your audience.
Now you may proceed to slide/rip through the envelope and note with the key but I prefer to perform a - pulling the key out - visual.
Remove the note/card from the envelope and return the item to the owner and display or hand out the envelope.
How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.

EZrhythm, I love that presentation idea! Very similar (in a sense) to Matthew Johnson's handling of the Stealth Pen (Pen Through Bill) that provides an additional optical convincer and will also make the "healing" more localized and convincing.

Well yeah it’s exactly the same presentation that loads of people already do with an envelope and a sharpie thru bill ? I think Mark Mason showed me this presentation in 1997 Gaz 😊
