    I love how they play it like they're comparing juggling to magic. Teller knows which card it is as soon as Penn says exactly where the deck has been cut.

    He absolutely cut the deck in a specific place. Very subtle, but works every time.

  • Påñtšü Mäśtęr

    The shuffling is rigged. He probably shuffled them into a specific order that teller already knows. Just by knowing how many cards there were before the card that was drawn, teller can easily know the card and get it out from his own deck.

      The one red nail is to remember his mother by. the others are because why not I guess. I know the red one is special and he always has it

    The cards were marked in some way where he knew by looking at the top what card it was
    He didn't actually shuffle the cards, if you slow mo at 2:24 you can see its an 8 of hearts of the bottom
    Slow mo at 2:32 after he shuffled them supposedly and you can still see the bottom card is 8 of hearts

    when he said out loud how many cards were left, teller then was able to know which card jimmy had picked as well.

    cool trick, lots of training and practice to pull off

    2:56 He sees the card, there must be an order which he knows, then he can tell that there are 27 cards and which was the card that Jimmy choose. And somehow he must tell his partner the card during that long time before they show it. They are pretty good but this time, bit disappointed

    • snipersimon
      snipersimon 25 days ago

      Great spot that! They must know every card number, so by saying 27, they know what card was taken, this also allowed teller to reveal the card needed.

    8 up & down movements - the next is nine - the shuffle was awfully obvious -

      The trick is easy. The real trick is getting an audience to appluad harder to the vices. You really need to steer them to that direction. Imagine doing this exact trick in a church.

  • Caffers

    Penm tells teller exactly which card by weighing the cards giving him the number. At which point teller does his bit.

  • Kimpachis
    Kimpachis 2 months ago

    all the cards were 9 of hearts. he later changed the deck lmao.

  • Tim Yates
    Tim Yates 2 months ago

    Penn actually gives the trick away at 2:27 by accident. Freudian slip! He accidentally reveals that he’s ‘learned the cards’ instead of ‘learned the trick with these cards’.
    He knows the whole order of the deck and quickly looks at the facedown card (card 26) which tells him the next card (card 27).

    "Count to 27 and make it interesting."
    Tell him to jump to the moon next. Jimmy can't make anything interesting.

    2:57 - Penn flips the deck and takes the slightest glance at the card on the bottom. If he's an expert card handler, that's enough to tell him how far down the "shuffled" deck Jimmy went -- "Aha, 27 cards." But how the nine of hearts specifically gets chosen is beyond me.

    The cards are ordered. for example 1-30, but they don't start in that order, They start for example 12-30 on the top and 11 to 1 on the bottom. Bottom in reverse order, because the shuffling is not shuffling...It's counting from the bottom to the top which puts them back in order - counting 11 cards. puts them in back to 1 to 20. Doesn't matter where they are cut Fallon didn't shuffle them and he didn't put the bottom on the top like in a normal cut. He handed the top of the cut to penn's right hand. He points at the top card on the table, and tells fallon to put it in his pocket (misdirection) Cause fallon and everyone else to look at fallon picking up the card and putting it in his pocket. while fallon is doing that pennflips the deck over as he moves the deck to his left hand and jhe looks at the bottom card. In fact you can see him look at it. as he moves it to his left hand and then his left hand flips them back so the design is on the top, and moves the deck back to his right hand . He's memorized the orde The card he saw tells penn how many were placed in his hand. The cards 1 to 27. He announces the number. which tells teller which card to rise. I've never done magic, nor have I ever seen this trick. Just thinking how it's possible. That's my guess.

      another look they are order.. but he's not shuffling... he split them and is just slapping them together to look like he's shuffling and then he puts them back.

    5:14 **"...and in this one case your vote does count..."** well, Penn's being honest in the respect that the so called "national votes" of ANY KIND for EITHER SIDE _(as they are ALL actors on the same stage)_ and many other "votes" even all the way down to local level, **Certainly Do Not Count for ANYTHING.** Voting is just a distraction, and the voting machine boxes are just as "magic" as tellers "box" of cards.

    Penn swapped the top half of the cut deck.
    the entire deck only contained 9 of hearts. he swapped it out with 27 random cards. the cards shown on the table were only from the top half that was swapped.

    2:30 penn does a fake shuffles for a few cards. 2:57 while he places the cards on left hand he quickly checks what card is on top with a quick flip thats the juggling. Knows the number since it was a prearranged deck. 3:12 tells the person inside the chair to place the 28th card (the card jimmy picked) to be placed in that magic card box. So Teller really does nothing besides secretly pulling it out from the couch and showing it to the audiance.

      Yes he is. His mother told him when he first started magic he should have a manicure because people would be looking at his hands. As a joke he had all his nails painted red. He keeps one of them red now for his mother.

  • Ritvik
    Ritvik 3 months ago

    The shuffle was fake in the first trick , so when he flips the deck at 2:55, he sees the card next to it and knows which card it was in sequential order. Teller probably just knows the deck back to front, so the card count was all he needed.

    I'll just add my thoughts for posterity (I didn't read all 800 of so precious comments, did you?). Penn is saying that *good* magic is BOTH skill and lying. Magicians are willing to do what most people are not for the trick.
    I would bet the *real* performance here is that, guessing there were 27 cards was the lie, and the guessing the right card was the skill - with both magicians having to do some crazy mental gymnastics in order to figure out the right card. Maybe by literally scanning the cards visually (what Penn was doing) and knowing which card was missing immediately.

    Here's how it works, the cards are stacked and with some maths, you can work out how many cards you're holding (check out scam school) Penn looks at the card when you changes hands and can work out what Jimmy's card is. I've seen this trick twice now and Penns patter changes meaning he's using code to tell the person hidden in the chair what Jimmy's card is and the person in the chair gets the card stock to the weighted pulldown. Notice teller isn't just standing like he normally does and that chair is very big and can easily hide someone. Also, Teller isn't holding the cards the full time and they're out of view for most of the trick.

    Fake cut, peak at card, raise and drop hand 8 times but teller knows to add one, " remember in your HEART the awe you felt....."
    Teller now knows 9 of hearts
    Rising card is simple....
    Teller didn't remember the order of the cards...too much for both to remember....Penn just gave discrete codes...
    Sorry for revealing your trick Penn and Teller.... but you two are too talented for that 5th grade magic trick
