Andrew Mayne’s

Magi-Cola EFFECT: The magician picks up a can of soda and begins to open it. A stream of soda shoots out nearly hitting a spectator. The magician apologizes profusely. “It’s kind of a chaos theory thing. No way to predict how it will squirt.” He holds the can up and shakes it. “That’s odd.” He turns that can upside down. Nothing pours out. He shows the top of the can to the audience. The can is completely empty. “Really random…”

MATERIALS: 1 Miniature squirt gun 1 Empty can of soda METHOD: The magician is holding a miniature squirt gun filled with water in his right hand. He picks up an empty can where the tab has been previously pushed in. His hand is covering the opening. As he opens the can he squirts a stream of water from the water gun towards the audience (he also makes a “pffft” sound). When he lifts the


can to his ear to shake it, the hand holding the water gun goes to his pocket and drops off the water gun. He brings the can to eye level and turns it over. He calls attention to the fact that the can is empty. To finish he hands the can to an audience member to inspect. The squirt gun in a thumb palm position. By pressing with the edge of your palm against the trigger the squirt gun can be made to fire.

BACKGROUND: This is a quick and easy way to use the squirt gun gimmick. To your audience it will look like you managed to make 12 ounces of soda vanish right in front of them. In addition to that, there are several possible variations of this effect that come to mind. It could be used in conjunction with the “Healed and Sealed” effect by Anders Moden (as performed by David Blaine). You could “open” the can then pour the contents into a borrowed hat and make the soda disappear, etc. The squirt gun is a way to create the illusion of a can filled with liquid in the mind of your audience.
