The magician introduces four red-backed playing cards. After showing them to be apparently ordinary cards the magician introduces the concept of making nothing appear. The cards are counted again and suddenly one of them has a giant hole in the middle of it. The hole is nearly the entire width of the card and there’s no way it could have been hidden. The hole is also proven to be real and multiple surfaces can be seen through it. The card is fairly dealt to the table. The remaining three cards are counted and a second hole appears. This one is also real! A third and fourth hole appear in the respective cards all of which are placed openly on the table. The cards are then stacked up and the magician comments about how conceptually making nothing appear is very difficult. What’s much easier is to make something appear that looks like nothing. With a magical gesture the hole in the middle of the cards transforms into a giant black sticker. All four cards are counted and all four holes are shown to be stickers. The cards are shown front and back and no hole can be found.
