Two of the routines I used to enjoy performing during the last century… when dinosaurs roamed the earth were the Sympathetic Matchboxes and the Acrobatic Matchbox. I stopped doing them many years ago but always looked for modern versions using modern and innocent looking props so when I saw the latest release using a Tic Tac container, which had a kicker ending, I had to get one and the method did not disappoint and the bonus, examinable, version was even more to my liking.
A modern version of the classic Acrobatic Matchbox using a Tic Tac container.
The basic routine has you put a box of Tic Tacs on your palm. It mysteriously stands on end and then the lid pops open by itself, and as a surprise ending a Tic Tac jumps out which can be easily eaten or given away.
As a bonus handling you are shown how to do an almost identical routine using an ordinary, or even borrowed Tic Tac box.
