You're going to have the first band on your left hand. Or reversed if you're a righty. Whatever. And, you know, you're going to have the other one right behind it with the first finger and the thumb. ... So situations like this. And you stretch it out a couple of times. For the penetration, you're going to come down with your right hand. And the middle finger of the right hand is going to pinch the rubber band on the top of the right hand. So it doesn't come off. And then the first finger of the right hand goes into the gap of the band. And as you come back, you let go of the middle finger, and it looks like it went right through.

And you could actually make the motions again. So it looks like it's still inside. And whenever you want, you can rub the middle, straight to blow on, or snap their fingers. And it looks like it comes right through. And the same goes with when the spectator's actually holding it. Put their first fingers and thumbs up. You're going to put your rubber band right behind it. And all the moves are the same. The pinch, insert, come back let go, and the reveal.
