Effect

The mentalist states that the oldest wager in the history of gambling is heads or tails. Since the game is obviously a 50-50 proposition or an even money bet...the mentalist states that he will make things a little more interesting by betting the spectator $1,000 that he can correctly predict whether a coin tossed by the spectator will land heads or tails. A prediction envelope is shown and placed aside. The mentalist states that to keep everything above board, the spectator will use an invisible coin. Pretending to hand an invisible coin to the spectator, the mentalist instructs the spectator to examine it. The mentalist points out that the coin has the word HEADS engraved on one side and TAILS on the other. The spectator is asked to toss the invisible coin in the air just for practice. The spectator does so. The mentalist explains, Don't look now sir, but you dropped the coin. The sight of the spectator picking up the invisible coin will usually evoke a laugh. Now, toss for the money, states the mentalist. The spectator pantomimes tossing and catching the coin. The mentalist asks the spectator whether the coin landed heads or tails? The spectator says heads. The mentalist opens the envelope and asks the spectator to remove a card upon which one word is boldly printed...HEADS.
