Science meets magic in this crazy trick reveal. All you need is a normal sized balloon and any deck of cards to begin. You can also use a spectator’s cell phone as a memorable prop instead of a deck. Whatever object you choose must have four corners. Blow up the balloon to a normal size. Hold the deck or phone in the palm of your hand. Then slowly start pressing the balloon into the object, letting it deflate. It’s important to press down enough so the balloon shape secretly wraps around the underside of the object.
Pro Tip: Flick the bottom of the balloon halfway into it deflating, making the sound like the object actually just passed thru the balloon’s barrier. Carefully remove the object or have the spectator cut a slit into the top near the nozzle. This makes it even more convincing there’s no other way the object could have snuck inside.
