Beer Can Floating On Air Trick
This pub trick is easy to do and very convincing, where a beer can appears
to float in mid air.
Effect: A soda / beer can can be seen
to be stuck in mid air whilst the performer mysteriously moves his
hand from the bottom to the top of the beer can to create the illusion
that the can is floating in mid air.
Preparation: You only need either a soda or beer can, oh and
slightly greasy fingers may help although are not absolutely necessary..
Method: Hold the beer or soda can in your hand, thumb on one side, fingers
on the other, (towards the bottom of the can), Now, simply release
the pressure of your grip a little and the can will start to slide in a downwards
motion. When doing this, your hand needs to be gradually but slowly moving in an upwards direction,
if the timing is right, it will create a cool illusion where it should look like the can
is floating in mid air, it is important that the upward movement of
the hand is exactly the same as the downwards movement of the can.
Comments: This is a very simple bar trick. The secret to its
success is all in the timing, therefore it is worthwhile spending some time
at home practicing. The result should be a very visual bar trick which
will have your audience amazed and maybe they will even pay out a drink
for you. Have fun.
