Crazy Man's Handcuffs by Michael Ammar

Effect: 

A rubber band is stretched between the index finger and thumb of the left hand, and a second rubber band, dangling from the right index finger is lowered into the half circle created by the left thumb and index finger. The right thumb moves into the loop of the band dangling from the right index finger. This locks the bands together, stretched between the index fingers and thumbs of both hands. There seems to be no way the hands could separate without taking the bands off the fingers, and yet that is exactly what happens. With no cover or confusion whatsoever, the rubber bands seem to melt apart, one strand at a time. The fact that is repeated twice only adds to the mystery. Finally, the spectator himself holds onto one band, as the performer's band melts through it. 

The Crazy Man's Handcuff"s is better known as one of the only effects David Copperfield chose to perform TWICE on his television specials, and one of the only close-up effects he performed in his traveling illusion show. 

But it's more than that. It is the complete presentation of one of the best walk around performance pieces of all time. If you perform corporate shows, hospitality suites, restaurants, bars or just casually for friends, this will surely become one of your favorites. Every detail of the techniques is explained, with sharply focused illustrations of ever movement.

but it takes more than funny patter and technical secrets to create a classic. you'll need to understand the timing, the routining and the psychological principles that fool the mind - not just the eye - of the most critical observer. You'll learn these true secrets of performing this effect here.

By following these instructions precisely, you will create a close-up illusion with ordinary rubber hands that would make the finest magicians in the world proud!

    Unless you want one of the strongest, most practical, treatise on this extremely potent effect. Ammar's manuscript on this effect explains why this effect is so powerful. Most do not even realize how great this effect is because they saw it done poorly for the first time. This essay will break it down for you step by step and teach you the workings of one of the most powerful close up effects you will ever perform.
