Bicycle Built for Five -- Ton Onosaka / Phil Goldstein
Ton Onosaka re-worked Goldstein's classic Five Card Polka, and printed very funny and unusual cards to go with the routine, and the result is probably the best packet effect ever, or at least one of the very best. Magician shows five jokers, and places one of them facedown on the table. The other four faceup jokers are touched to the facedown tabled card, and (since he is the leader), one of the faceup jokers turns facedown. This is repeated three more times until all four jokers in the hands have turned facedown. Now the killer ending comes and hits the audience right between the eyes -- the four card sare turned faceup, and the jokers are gone, leaving just their bicycles!! And when the tabled card is shown, it has all five jokers riding acrobatic style on a single bike. Or an alternate ending card has the hard-working jokers kickin' back with some brewskies! very funny, very surprising and very mystifying, because the handling is ultra-clean! no tricky illogical counts and no think packet. You will really like this one!
