In the past others have used various ideas that switch in the same way, but this is a product that makes sense and is makes use of a funny premise. You do the switch right in front of there face and it’s very open, you aren’t hiding anything but it does allow you to get a laugh and inject some humor in to your act. This little gimmick gives you a reason to put a bill in your pocket and switch it. You can then do whatever routine you want once you’ve switch the bill, but they also include a strong routine with a deck of cards and ‘their’ bill. " -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
