Pop Haydn performs his own version of Winged Silver

This is a newly uploaded video of a 2007 performance in the Close-Up Gallery at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. This is my own version of Coins Across/Winged Silver.

I like this routine for the false explanation of the method. The common explanation of magic is that it goes “up your sleeves.” Here, the spectator’s common explanatory concept of coins going up the sleeve becomes the effect itself.

  1. Wonderful version! Bravo!


  2. I hadn’t seen your version of this before, but I always liked the “up the sleeves” fake explanation. I remember Henry Hay’s standup routine which used the same idea, but this routine appeals to me much more, because it is so clear and uncomplicated.
