The magician removes the four Aces from a red-backed deck of cards. He explains that he will use “sleight of hand” to invisibly turn the cards over one by one. He places the rest of the deck aside and displays the four cards in his hands. "I will now show you how a magician can turn cards over using an ancient technique called “the Twist”. He holds the packet of face-up cards in between his middle finger and thumb as he slowly gives them a “Twist”. To the spectator’s surprise, the Ace of Hearts has magically turned face-down. The magician gives the cards another twist, however this time the Ace of Clubs is the only face-down card. He twists the cards again revealing only the Ace of Diamonds has turned face-down. Finally with the slowest twist of them all, the Ace of Spades turns Face-down. "This is only an illusion” he explains "for as you can see all of the Aces are face-up." The magician spreads the Aces out to show that they are all face-up. "Illusions are simply a trick of the mind, For example, do you recall the color of the backs of the cards?” “Red!” the spectator said with such confidence. “Are they?” asks the magician, “Or was it merely an illusion?” The magician turns each Ace over one at a time to show they now all have blue colored backs. In fact all of the cards in the entire deck now have blue backs. “Like I said, illusions are tricks of the mind” he said, “and you know how magicians create such illusions right? Using Mirrors!” The magician turns the four Aces over one last time, revealing the four mirrors.
