Villain by Kevin Parker
Borrow a ring, vanish it, and pull out your keys, and there it is hanging from your keyring.
Kevin Parker has created an impromptu ring flight that uses no reels, devices, long sleeves or clothing requirements, weird angles, pulls, or any hook-up that carries the ring to your keyring; it uses no gimmicks whatsoever and is a ring-flight you can do anywhere you go without having to bring anything special with you. The vanish is a miracle in itself in that not only are you not standing at weird angles or holding the ring close to you, but it completely disappears in a loose casual manner away from your body, without going up any sleeves, and leaves both hands completely empty. Then, without any additional moves, magician simply pulls his keys out of his pocket and there's the ring visibly and clearly hanging from his keyring. That is THEIR ring, not a second ring preloaded on the keyring. You remove the ring and give it back, along with the keys, and there's absolutely nothing to find.
This can even be performed with a spectator's keys and such a version is taught on this DVD. Kevin Parker designed Villain with cleanness and simplicity in mind for zero nervousness performances.
"I can't stress how much I love it already, I mean it's SO simple, yet clever and brilliant. I remember wanting to pick up the Departure (I believe it was called) Ring Flight which cost 50$, but didn't want to deal with the weird angles with the hook-up and etc. Luckily I didn't pick it up, because this one definitely beats any ring flight I've seen."

"Kevin Parkers ring flight is one of the most visual and amazing handelings I have ever seen. An amazing effect."

I'm happy to report that the add copy is true. If you want to vanish a spectator's ring and have it appear on your key ring then Villain will allow you to do just that with no gimmicks.
The bottom line for me is this is something I will use as I always have my keys with me. Great for those times when people find out you're a magician and say show us something."

"Villain is a great outside the box way of doing the classic ring flight. Any time your stuck in a situation where you have nothing on you and someone wants to see some magic Villain is a great effect to have in your arsenal."
