Setup: You don’t need any special jackets or magic props to perform this effect. However, it usually works best with long sleeves so the audience cannot see the position of your elbow, which could give away the method. Follow along with the arm positions shown by Reza and be careful to not injure yourself as you practice.
Pro Tip: While you are helping the spectator with how to place their arm, this is your golden opportunity to reset your arm behind your back. Your volunteer will be paying so much attention to their own arm that they won’t notice you doing anything differently.
