Heather, I'm just curious, do you have a fix?

Speaker 2: Like what?

Speaker 1: Like some people need coffee or cigarettes.

Speaker 2: Pizza.

Speaker 1: Pizza! That's interesting, for me it's, you are going to find this really weird. Check it out, rubber band, watch.

Speaker 2: Oh my God!

Speaker 1: Good for the sinuses actually. One a day keeps the doctor away. This is called the rubber band up the nose. You need a bunch of rubber bands, size 19 is the perfect size to use. You are going to have a bunch of them on your wrist, and I'll explain why you need a bunch of them in a second. Basically what you are going to do is you are going to take a rubber band. You don't have to take it off your wrist, you are going to twist it, away from you, pinch it between your fingers, pull on it, put it on your nose. And as you sniff up, you let go of the rubber band so, like that. So the illusion of your head going up and the rubber band going back down is a perfect illusion.

I'll do it one more time for you. Stretch it out, twist it away from you, re grab, pull it between your fingers, put it around your nose and as you sniff you let go like that. And basically why you want to use a bunch of rubber bands, this is called the camouflage principal in magic. So when it shoots back it looks like, it just looks like you have a bunch of rubber bands and you don't know if it's the same one you pulled off or whatever it is. And this is a really fun item, it's a great way to gross out your friends. So go out there and make some new friends, all right. That's the rubber band up the nose.
