This trick is of medium skill level

Effect: You are walking down the street and casually pick any spectator.

You ask them to come with you to a nearby car and pick a dead fly off the windscreen.

You hold it in your hand do a few passes with the other hand and appear to be really concentrating and the fly slowly comes back to life to the surprise of the spectator.

Preparation: Freeze the fly

 

Method: You need to catch a fly and chill it. which puts it in a temporary coma, this can be done by swatting the fly hard enough to immobilise it then placing it in a small container in the freezer for a short time.

The fly then needs to be quickly taken to a suitable windscreen IN THE SHADE and placed there.

It is important that the car is in the shade to prevent the fly from defrosting too quickly.

Then go and find a spectator and take them back to the car which should appear to be randomly picked.

The heat of your hand will revive the fly which should soon start to move.
