    That is ridiculously good, except it looks like you're awkwardly holding something in the right hand for some of it.

    I have no idea what, so obviously it's a good effect. Kudos.

    I like it.. i dont smoke and have no intention of starting but if i did this would be one i would use. I could see this being useful in some of my close up work. I like the casual way it is performed. It leads the spectator into a shocker ending. Amazing stuff...
    Could you do it with out the jacket? :)

    Yeah I do 2 varitions (your seeing only one variation however). My other method which looks pretty much the same, I can do without a jacket however it doesn't end as clean.

    Yes I learned it myself. No book. No DVD. No nothing. Just experiementation and a fun utility device. I haven't seen anyone else do the trick but there is a number of ways it can be done..

    That was great. I am a smoker, and that would be a great trick to put in my routine. But where would I learn it? I know you said you figured it out on your own, but is there a book, or video that teaches it?

    The Encyclopedia of Cigarette Magic has some great tricks for cigarette magic. But it is a hard read and will take time to go thru the material. It was written in 1937 by Keith Clark. Some of the material will have to be changed to fit the times now. But a ton of information in there.

    Also there is some stuff in Tarbell’s series and other sources.

    Eilers - I mentioned to you the first time that you posted your unlit version that it was good and it still is. Have you street tested it yet… you know lit a cigarette in the mall and when Security stops you… you just make it disappear. (Sorry I am easy to entertain).
