►Flick Trick: A card is selected and lost in the deck by the spectator. When you get the deck back you give the deck a fancy cut and their card jumps out, and boomerangs back toward the deck using the Martin Lewis Spinner Move, where it is caught in the middle.
►Sucker: A card spins out of the deck and is sucked and caught by your mouth.
You also get to see Rick set the Guinness World Record on March 21, 2001 where he threw a card for a distance of 216 feet and 4 inches! The video ends with some outtakes where the cards don’t want to participate.
