The magician decides to let the spectator in on a secret; he is using a secret marked deck. This however is unlike anything the spectator could ever imagine...
Firstly the magician points out that there is LITERALLY nothing on one side of the deck. The word "Nothing" is clearly printed in permanent ink across the length of the deck, this fact is verified by the spectator. There is however something written on the opposite side of the deck; the pack is turned to show the printed word "Something" to the spectators which they once again verify.
The magician explains that he will now show them a great trick using the marked cards and a little something else...
The cards are clearly shown to be mixed and the spectator is then asked to peek at a card. The magician then goes further to demonstrate his highly skillful shuffling technique which looks anything but skillful. The cards are literally mixed into a big clump within the magician’s hands.
Displaying the mess of cards, the magician offers to show the spectator an additional little something. Suiting actions with words the spectator is physically shown “A little something” written across the side of the deck.
Just when the spectator has given up on the idea of ever seeing a real magic effect the magician snaps his fingers above the deck causing each and every card in the deck to return to new deck order!
With the deck straightened there is one question left unanswered and to the amazement of everyone the spectator answers this question in the most magical way imaginable, he literally produces something from nothing with the word nothing visually rearranging itself to spell out the name of the spectators card!
