Hi everybody! Malik the Magic Guy for expertvillage.com. Now I’m going to teach you that great, great version of “Out of This World.” And this is a professional quality trick. I did this trick this way for many, many years, and even the guys here making the movie are real excited to be learning this. So I’m going to show you how to do it. It involves a full deck setup that I’m going to show you. Now it’s sort of the red-black setup with a little bit of change. We have a bunch of black cards on the bottom, we have a bunch of red cards, and then we have a small setup with red and black cards. Now the way this goes is red, red, black, red, black, black, and then there’s one more red one, so it’s two reds, a black, a red, two blacks and a red. You can spread it this way so you can see it easier, but it goes red, red, black, red, black, black, red: that’s pretty easy to remember if you run through it a few times. Now what that leaves you with is 22 red cards and 23 black cards, and you’re going to put those together just like that, and you’re going to take this setup, put it on top, stick it in the box. Now you can do your false cut if you want; this is a situation that you don’t want the audience member cutting the deck. But then you talk about how you can tell the colors of cards just by dealing, by intuition, and you go through your setup. That’s a red one, that’s a red one, I think this one’s black this might require a little bit of acting, this one’s red, this one’s black, this one’s definitely black and this one is red. Now I know that I have this pile of cards left with 22 red ones, 23 black ones. We’re going to give this to Mr. Hand. Now what you’re going to do is take one red card, you’re going to put it on your right, you’re going to take a black card and put it on your left, and I’m going to let Mr. Hand start dealing cards where ever he wants. So he’s going to start dealing the cards onto whatever pile he thinks is the right color; it doesn’t matter cause they’re all red. You go ahead Mr. Hand, start dealing. And what’s happening is I’m counting in my head until I get to 22, so that’s 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, and 22, and then I stop him there. Now what’s happened is all these cards are red; and in the end this pile is actually going to be backwards, but I’m going to show you how to deal with that. Now we’re going to change the colors of the piles, so this is the black pile and this is the red pile. And you want to encourage them to go as quickly as possible so the trick doesn’t take forever, and deal the cards whatever they’re thinking. Now you don’t even have to count, you’re just going to let them deal until they run out of cards because now they’re dealing all black cards.
