Sometimes the video instructions are automatically included with your downloads on Penguin or Vanishung Unc and sometimes they are only included in a link provided with the physical product. I prefer that they all are provided with your downloads so you do not need to look for the link later if you need to look at instructions again.

I have watched the video now. And, its probably the greatest rubberband trick I have seen. Now its time to for me to practise the trick. Look forward to perform this golden trick.

Re Vanishing Inc, you don't have to ring them up to get the link. Go to your account page - just below "Access your downloads and lectures" there's a link to "Product Instructions". This takes you to links to all your 3rd party instructions. I don't know why they didn't tell you this when they emailed you. Took me a while to figure this out and I discovered other things there that I'd forgotten I bought.


That doesn't work either, as you need a password to view the video, and the password is with the physical product.


Vanishing Inc, helpfully, put the password in your account too.


I stand corrected, you are right, the passwords are listed.

I just watched the instruction video. I don't know what to think at this point. I'm sure it's too early to come to a judgement about it. It is incredibly easy to do, but I really need to do this in a mirror to see what it looks like from their angle, because it doesn't look good from my angle. It almost feels like something that I shouldn't be able to get away with. I am reserving judgement until after a either do it in front of a mirror or video record my performance of it, or both.

I feel you KJ. It does look so weird from the performers angle and you think there's no way it would fool anyone...
But watch the video through a few times and note carefully the position and orientation of the hands as Sam does it. I had my hands in slightly the wrong positions but once I sorted that all out after going back over it and walking before I ran, it slowly started to come together.

It's a strange one because it shouldn't work as well as it does but you can do it slowly and it looks absolutely ridiculous in the mirror. like real magic. it really helped me to just work on the basic handling and I made sure I had everything exactly as Sam does and that I really understood which hand moves in what way and when. I had it slightly wrong at first and it looked...well it looked ****.

Even though it's ridiculously simple its also a beautiful thing and deserves to be learned exactly as Sam does it first, perfected that way and then varied as you see fit. I can forsee a lot of people butchering this because of its simplicity but I wont be one of them. I'd practice this for 5 hours a day to get it as smooth and deceptive as Sams version.

This fooled me so badly in the trailer and still does in the instruction video. I wouldn't have figured this out in 10 years and I think its pretty amazing that we have all been doing CMH for years and then this comes along and you cant believe it hasn't been discovered before.

The way Sam does it makes it look like actual magic, its impossible to figure out if its done well. So do it well and you'll have one of the best tricks I've ever seen.

I have only just watched this and it looks great.
I did immediately notice the band moved from his second to his third finger on the penetration.
That must be something to do with the method but looks amazingly visual I must admit Gaz Smile

Love this effect so much but my worry is that it's so easy that it will slip into the public's general knowledge and become something future generations will learn in the playground.

Right now it's highly innovative because nobody had thought such a ballsy set of moves would be such a fooler but perhaps in a year's time it'll be the next jumping band.

I'm having a bit of an issue with the band slipping down my finger, not staying near the tip of my ring finger when stretched. Still in my first hour of practice.

I don’t think the band moves fingers.

I don't have Sam's finesse yet but I might suggest having the band further onto the tip of your finger to prevent slippage, or try completely different bands (the ones supplied have Joe Rindfleisch's special coating making them more slippery). Hope this helps Smile

Like clockwork ... there's a pirate site selling the video for 1/3 the price. (Don't get the 30 rubber bands though LOL)

Sad world ... I'm buying from actual distributor.

OMG. This is a beautiful illusion. I keep watching the explanation and I'm still fooled. Utterly beguiling and worth practising because unless you get the beats right, it could look like exactly what you're doing! But the moves are not remotely difficult. Trick of the year, easy.

Well spotted Gaz but that doesn’t happen on the main method, which is very clean with no manipulation at all.
Havng watched the whole thing multiple times, Sams original methods for fast and slow penetrations are miles better than any of the “improvements” or advanced handlngs.

They alll look good but are not needed because the ‘basic’ versions look like real magic with no clue of how they are done.
There’s always something slightly fishy imo with the advanced versions. The originals are by far the best and don’t need ‘improving’ for me.

Agree with this. It would be a shame but entirely likely. I stand by what I said earlier that this will get butchered because the concept is so easy to grasp. But watch Sam do it and aim for only that level and you’ll do this for the rest of your life.

Finally got mine and am really impressed. Have been doing CMH for 25 yrs and this is a killer addition. Fooled me and the fact that there is no get ready makes this a rare gem in the world of rubber band magic.
