The rubber band effect David Copperfield performed on his Magic Frorn China special!
A rubber band is stretched between the index finger and thumb of your left hand. A second rubber band, dangling from the right index finger is lowered into the half circle created by your left thumb and index finger. Your right thumb moves into the loop of the band dangling from your right index finger. This locks the bands together, stretched between the index fingers and thumbs of both hands. There seems to be no way your hands could separate without taking the bands off the fingers. Yet that is exactly what happens! With no cover or funny moves, the rubber bands seem to melt apart, one strand at a time!
Repeat it twice to add to the mystery!
Finally, the spectator himself holds onto one band as your band melts through his!
You are buying a beautifully illustrated manuscript. Supply your own rubber bands - any that feel comfortable to you will work just fine!
