As a follow up to almost any magic trick
with a soda can, make sure you are using one of the new lime cola
cans. For example, perform the marked quarter to soda can trick
using a lime cola can. Vanish the signed quarter, open the soda
can and pour the soda out into a glass. Jangle the can so they
can hear that it contains a coin. Hand the can to someone to fish
the quarter out and verify the signature on the coin.
When they get out the coin, they
toss the can to you. After the signature on the coin is verified
and the crowd is impressed, shake the can again for them. This
time they hear a very different sound, like something heavy
thumping around inside the can. Let a spectator peek inside the
can through the top hole and something green is seen. Tear open
the can with your bare hands, and out falls a real lime
after all, it IS a lime cola!
In the article, I explain an older
version of the signed quarter to soda can (NOT the one sold in
stores!) and all the workings of getting the lime in the can.
