How to Make a Cigarette Disappear

Learn how to make a cigarette disappear from magician Michael Patrick in this Howcast magic tricks video.


Hi. I'm Mike Patrick and this is how to make a cigarette disappear. I'll show you two different ways of doing this.

One, is to take the cigarette. Make it vanish and reappear like this. And the other one is to take the cigarette burn on the floor and you can immediately get it back like this. These are two slightly different techniques. What you would do is you have the cigarette and you're going to essentially do this kind of action as you take it into your other hand. As soon as this hand screens the cigarette, you allow the thumb, the middle finger is going to pull in and it pivots around the thumb like this. When this goes like this, disappears and in the continuing action you can bring this hand to your mouth and make the cigarette reappear. You can do this while it's lit to makes it a little bit more impressive. Make sure you don't hit your head and burn yourself. Cigarettes are extremely hot.

Disappears. Reappears like this. The other way, and when you're throwing on the floor, and you don't actually throw the cigarette on the floor, what you do is you hold it as if you're holding a cigarette normally in between the index and middle fingers. You come in, and almost like a thimble vanish, you clip the tail end of the cigarette with your thumb and you open your hand like this. But you do it as you throw the cigarette. So, you apparently throw it on the ground. Step.

Then you can immediately simply reach back in and reclip the cigarette and make it reappear. This is very easy to do while it's lit and makes the most sense because why else would you step a cigarette out. You do this, throw on the ground, stomp on it, reproduce, and continue on with whatever you were doing. Those are two ways of making a cigarette vanish and reappear.
