Clips that Join Secret
HotShot With Rubber Bands • 1m 14s
Setup: All you need is a dollar bill of any value, medium-size rubber band, and two normal paper clips. This trick is self-working. You don’t need any special gimmicks.
Position the rubber band onto the center of the bill. Then carefully fold the bill into an “S” shape. Place the paper clips on both sides as shown in the video, holding the dollar bill together. When you pull the bill flat, do it quickly with confidence. The paperclips will automatically do the rest.
Pro Tip: Many people will ask to see this trick twice. Instead of repeating it again, have another dollar bill effect ready so you can instantly transition into more of your magic routine.
