Three’s a crowd

Step 1: Show the audience that you have three ping pong balls in your hand.

Step 2: Cover them with your other hand.

Step 3: Rub your hands back and forth.

Step 4: Take away your hand, and all see that one of the ping pong balls has disappeared.

Step 5: The secret is rather simple. From the start, you have not three balls, but two and a half!

Step 6: While rubbing your hands together, you press the half-ball onto the whole one.

Step 7: Like this.

Step 8: Only be careful at the end to show the ping pong ball from the side of the half-ball – or risk having your secret exposed.
