Ripped & Relocated by Josh Janousky
RIP & RELOCATE A CORNER OF A REAL DOLLAR BILL
If Josh Janousky's brain was used for evil, he'd be on America's most wanted list. The things he can do with bills are so scary, they look illegal to the untrained eye.
Ripped & Relocated is his pièce de résistance. (That's French for OMFG it's good)
Borrow a bill, tear a corner from it and permanently re-attach the corner to the bottom of the banknote.
Then, with no switches or funny moves, you extend forward and... give them the bill. It's real, why wouldn't you?
There is no glue, no tape, no rubber cement and no magnets. That corner is actually on there.
For those outside of the US, along with receiving the official gimmick you'll also get access to 3 brand new receipt templates to perform this effect without ever tearing a bill.
The best part is, if you want to give away the receipts or the main Ripped & Relocated Dollar gimmick, they can even be SIGNED.

Can the bill be signed?
Yes, it can be borrowed from a spectator and signed.
Can the spectator keep the 'R&R' dollar bill?
Yes, it's a genuine dollar bill that they can treasure forever.
Do they have to keep the bill?
No, Josh will teach you a clean-up where they go home with a fresh dollar and you get to keep the gimmick.
Is this illegal?
No, it's completely legal. As crazy as this may seem, this is real legal tender with no sticking or glueing.
What if I'm not in the US, can it be done with my local currency?
Once you know the secret, there may be a way for you to achieve the same in your local currency, however 'Ripped & Relocated' comes with a receipt version too. English, Spanish and Chinese receipts are automatically provided with each purchase so you can perform this WHEREVER you are.
But I don't live in a country where they speak those languages?
You can either introduce the gimmicked bill or receipt as an object and say you were just on holiday in <<insert country you want to use>> and you noticed something cool with their receipts, "WATCH"... Or you can use the secret / format provided to make your own gimmicks in a language or country of your choosing.
How much do refills of the Dollar gimmick cost?
Technically it costs slightly more than two dollars to perform this effect if you plan on giving the bill away as a souvenir.
Why is this better than any other TnR card effect?
Using something organic and familiar like bills or receipts makes the magic more believeable. Although many magicians don't want to admit it, introducing a normal deck of cards is still introducing a 'special prop' in your spectators eyes.
To them, a bill or receipt just feels more impossible. Try it!
YuriThe effect is great, and will for sure leave your audience speechless; however, it was not disclosed in the product description that you will have to make a new gimmick every time you perform this regardless of whether or not you give away as a souvenir which makes it for my personal case a major reason not to buy. If after knowing this, you still think it is worth spending time and money making a new gimmick every time it is performed then you should definitely go and buy it.
SummaryGreat work Josh! People love my 'dollar trick' (Fraud) I have a feeling this is going to be another favorite for my audiences! cant wait to start messing with this!!
TimOk... I'll get the negative out of the way first.
3 stars because this is NOT just $24.95. It is actually more. FAR more. Once you know the method - you'll see why. I should give this 2 stars because of this. I believe Ellusionist should have disclosed this a little more OPENLY in their "FAQ's" section so customers knew what they were getting into. Shame.
On a positive note, this really is a great effect. Like I said, once you know the method, you will be able to perform something that people WILL always remember. IT IS super simple, this is true. So practicing is a cinch and performing is super fun. You can spend more time focusing on interacting with your spectators until you are ready to surprise the hell out of them. Josh does a great job explaining with good camera angles, so you can better visually see all the steps for performing the method.
