I am always on the look out for simple tricks that I can carry easily in my wallet or pockets -- just so that I can have a variety of "always on me" magic effects for those "do a trick" requests.
BURNER is one of those tricks that fits in your wallet, takes up only one credit card slot, and is always ready to go. It is a cute transformation effect, where your fitness club membership card turns into a Fast Food loyalty discount card. The patter is a long the lines of I try to stay in shape, but the junk food always wins.
There is nothing groundbreaking about Burner's method -- in fact, if you are looking at the photos and thinking how it could work, you are probably right. On the instructional DVD, Christopher Kohler teaches you the handling, with a simple switch incorporating your everyday wallet.
You just take the card from your wallet and you are ready to go, so it is a good quickie for those moments when someone says do a trick. But the whole transformation routine only lasts about 30 seconds, so probably good to have another pocket trick or two ready for the encore.
Nicely made, with reasonably realistic looking plastic cards. Usually sells for $20, but I got a few at a close-out price, so get it here for less.
Brand new, with DVD instructions
