The snap vanish routine just goes to show that a trick does not have to be complex in order to have a very convincing and visual effect.

This also frees your mind up to engage in some amusing patter with the crowd of onlookers.

You can see a good example of the importance of timing in the vanishing routine shown in the video above. Indeed, correct timing and very importantly, not going to fast and fluidity of movement are important key parts of the trick.
