The magician shows 4 cards to a spectator. On each card is a lighted match. Showed one by one, and placed face down in the spectator's palm, the magician then lights a real match, and after letting the flame glow, he extinguishes it. He explains that this simple action magically influenced the cards. The cards that the spectator was holding are turned over, and incredibly on each of them, there is now the image of a match that has just been blown out!!!
