It's time to stop thinking outside the box, and start thinking inside the can!

Deceptus is quite simply one of the best object penetration magic tricks available to magicians. You can throw common borrowed objects straight into a soda can. Rings, signed coins, lighters, and that's just the start. The borrowed object really is inside the can!
The spectators can see their item through the drink hole, the only way to get the item out is to cut open the can!
Deceptus comes with a special gimmick that does the hard work for you. You learn multiple handlings to suit all skill levels. There is also an instant reset method where you melt the borrowed item from the can without having to cut open the can.

This is TV magic brought close up and practical, straight from the working repertoire of professional magician Jimmy Strange.

Warning - Not suitable for children

You will be cutting open a metal soda can, so this item is not suitable for children. It's vital that you wear suitable hand protection when handling a sharp knife and cutting open a can. We don't want anyone to hurt themselves. Deceptus is sold for information purposes only, and recommended for professional use, as you need to be careful and responsible when cutting open a metal can. You need to ensure the safety of your spectators and dispose of the can correctly at the end of the performance.

'The BEST object through can ever! Period!'

Questions and Answers about Deceptus

Can you drink from the can at the start of the performance?
Ben does cover how he likes to be drinking from the can as he approaches a group, drains the last drop and uses the can for his opener. Chris Webb suggests having the can on the floor or planting it near a bin, pick it up and pour our a little soda to empty it, before using the can. See the included DVD for details.

Can the can be inspected before and after the trick?
When Jimmy Strange performs Deceptus, he lets them handle the can at the start, then hands it to them to check that the object really is inside. This sort of controlled inspection works perfectly. He then cuts the can open himself for health and safety. We don't recommend that you give them the cut open can afterwards as a cut can isn't safe for them to play with. They are getting a very close look at it as you cut it open. Ben Williams goes into great detail about 'over proving' and how to avoid that.

Can I use any type of soda can?
The included gimmick works with most popular cans worldwide, However, some soda cans may not be suitable. We use Pepsi cans in the US and UK to perform Deceptus. Most cans are of uniform design, so it takes seconds to test out a few of your favourite soda drinks to find the one you like best.

How should I present Deceptus?
Let them play with the soda can at the start, do a penetration, show the can, as you are showing that their object really is inside (it is) and then carefully cut the item out. End of trick. More than that would be anti-climactic.

Can you reuse the can?
You could reuse it, and Ben Williams covers how to do that on the DVD. The gimmick is designed to be used over and over again. We suggest you use the opportunity and cut the item out. It freaks them out and cans are cheap. If you need more, the event bar will probably have them. You can quickly prep more in the events green room, or a quite corner.
