A card is selected and lost in the pack. The magician then claims he will cause the card to rise to the top of the deck, but he fails. When he turns over the top card, it is NOT the selection, as he said it would be. The magician gets mad, tearing up the top card into four pieces and placing them into a spectator's hand. The magician then looks through the pack for the spectator's card, finding it somewhere in the middle. Flustered, the magician then tries to redeem himself. He holds the selected card in his hands where it CHANGES VISIBLY into the card that was torn just a moment ago!
But wait...if that card is whole and in the magicians’ hand...what card is the spectator holding? The spectator open's his hand to reveal THEIR SELECTED CARD, torn into four pieces! The spectator is then asked to close their hand again over the four pieces, where they RESTORE into a whole card once again!
