From the mind of Alessandro Criscione alias Dan Alex (an italian illusionist), a surprising effect where you can show a cigarette shorten itself.
The magician borrows a cigarette and explains what is going to do: he tries to reduce the cigarette, shaking it and the public can clearly see the cigarette shortening. Then he's going to show it shortened three quarters more or less, and soon after, with just one gesture he extends it again as the beginning. Easy to do, instant repeat, a quick set-up, handy and 100% low-cost!
All this is Small Vision
