Jay Sankey is a magical MacGuyver who has designed tricks for big names throughout the magic industry. For the last few months he’s been sharing some nice and simple tricks for free to promote his YouTube channel and merch.
In this video, he teaches us how to perform a trick with a coffee cup and mixing stick that needs scarcely any setup. The trick is really simple, but the real value of the vid is Sankey’s advice on working into and out of the trick, and how to keep people’s eyes where you want them to be. That being said, the only trick I can do with a coffee cup is making the contents of said cup (which is usually coffee) disappear, so I’ll likely add this one to my repertoire.
