A couple years ago, there was a variation on an old card trick floating around the internets. If you haven't seen it, here it is:

The card trick part starts at 1:30. Read the bottom of this post for the explanation. Once you know how it works, it's just a matter of what story you decided to attach to the deck.

Tonight on the Facebooks, I just saw the sappiest, Jesusy variation yet. Imagine if Thomas Kinkade got ahold of it and packaged it up for sale at Walmart in the Bible Belt:

I gotta hand it to him . . . he packaged it up for sale to the dumbest, lowest common denominator and it's probably going to make him some money. He even overdubbed some sappy music on it. I bet the boys in Bob's Country Bunker were crying in their beer when they saw this.

Spoiler: It's a prepared deck in a certain order. He pretends to cut the deck with 'false cuts', but he never changes the order except rotating it in a circular fashion.
