1. You show two REGULAR AND UNPREPARED rubber bands, each held between a thumb and finger. The bands and your fingers make rings. You show that there is no way to link these rings.You rub the bands against each other, and make them VISUALLY penetrate each other. This is a compelling illusion, with exactly the same visual as crazy man's handcuffs- except the bands are going IN!
2. You show that now there is no way to get out. Then, the bands visually penetrate out- ONE STRAND AT A TIME! When they are half way through, the bands can be pulled to show that the bands are REALLY HALF-WAY THROUGH! Then, the last strand pulls on the other rubber band and VISUALLY POPS THROUGH!!!
3. You offer to repeat the effect, bringing the bands up to chest height. Again, the bands penetrate IN AND OUT!
4. You then ask an audience member to hold one of the bands between their two hands. You show that the bands are definitely outside each other, and there is no way to get through.Now YOU TELL THEM EXACTLY WHERE TO LOOK! The bands immediately and visually penetrate each other RIGHT AT THAT SPOT!!! Then, they penetrate back out and you take your applause.
The above routine is 100% commercial, and has been audience tested over thousands of performances. PLUS, you will have all the tools you will ever need to construct your own personalized version of the crazy man's handcuff's:
1. DEAN DILL personally teaches his legendary "no pull" method for getting the bands apart.
2. MICHAEL AMMARS brilliant handling of the crazy man's handcuffs, in which the spectator is holding one of the bands.
3. DAVE WOMACHS move to show the bands HALFWAY THROUGH the penetration!

5. LOREN MICHAELS teaches his original "Band-It" move, which allows you to make the bands penetrate IN! NO MORE AKWARD SET-UP!
6. Nabil takes you through 6 VARIATIONS of Loren's move, including HOW TO GO IN ON A BAND HELD BY AN AUDIENCE MEMBER!!! This leads directly into Michael Ammar's penetration and makes an unbelievable finalÈ that NEVER FAILS TO GET AUDABLE GASPS!!!
