Equipment / Tools
- Straight pin
Stick the pin into the banana where you want the banana to "break." Move the pin in a horizontal plane to effectively separate the banana into two pieces. Repeat the process if you want to cut the banana into multiple pieces. Simply use the pin in each location where you want it to break.
The trick is to use the pin to cut the banana without causing any visible damage to the banana peel. At the end of the preparation, the banana will appear to be normal. The spectators will not notice the tiny pinholes that are a result of the preparation that breaks up the internal banana.
Show the Banana
Bring out and show the banana to your spectators.
Execute any magical moves to apparently split into parts the banana inside its peel, or simply stare at the banana to cause it to "separate" using the power of your mind. This is the show part. Don't be afraid to play it up and have some fun.
Peel the Banana
With your "showy" part done, you're ready for the big unveil. You've suggested to spectators that you have apparently caused the banana to break into pieces inside its skin. You've told spectators this but they won't believe you.
Slowly unpeel the banana to show that the banana is already cut inside of its peel.
