Jon Dorenbos’ Magical Military Reunion

Jon Dorenbos’ Magical Military Reunion


Jon, what are we doing? It’s a great day to be alive. I want to do a trick. OK. But I want to
involve you, and I’d like to involve somebody
in the audience. OK. Is that OK? Yep, yeah. OK, why don’t you pick
somebody out, anybody you want. It doesn’t matter. Pick someone out. Ahh. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Are you with child? Yes. Well then, come on, you. [SCREAMING] It’s like we have
two volunteers. Yeah, right. Hey, I’m Jon. Hi, Jon, nice to meet you. Nice to meet you. Hi. We have to– we have
to– hi, I’m Ellen. Hi, Ellen. Hi. So this is very exciting. You look like
you’re due any day. When are you due? Next week. Really? Yes. I was supposed to get
induced yesterday, but I wanted to be here, so. Oh my God. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] That’s a fan. Yes? See, that’s dedication. That’s the kind of fan I like. You move your inducement thing. [LAUGHTER] So what is your name? My name is Ashley Carter. Hi, Ashley. And where do you live,
and what do you do? I live in San Clemente
on Camp Pendleton with my husband,
who’s in the infantry. We have two kids
and one of the way. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Wow, so your husband
is with you now, or no? No, he’s deployed. Oh, OK, all right. And you have two other kids? Yes. OK, how old are they? I have Olivia. She’s eight. And then I have Jessa. She’s two. OK, great. All right, well,
what are we doing? Let’s rock this. Stand here. Stand here. You each got a Sharpie. You guys are going to use them. So all I want you
to do, Ellen, is I’m going to riffle
through here. And say, stop. Stop. There it is. Uh-huh. We got a card right here. It’s the 4 of clubs. Ellen, just sign it. Uh-huh. There we go. We’re going to show
the camera there, so that everybody can see it. We’re going to
take your 4, Ellen, and we’re going to put
it somewhere down here in the center. Ashley, you’re going
to do the same thing. Are you ready? Yes. Just say stop. Stop. Right here, whatever card this
is, we got a card right here. It is the queen of hearts. Do me a favor. Sign that bad boy. Perfect. We’ve got a queen of hearts. We got a 4 of clubs. Ashley, yours is going to
go in the center, like so. Now it’s a cool move. If you just take your hand
and give it a little shake, I can reverse one
of those cards. Ahh, we get yours, Ashley, huh? Oh boy. Just wait. It gets better. Just wait. And if we just give it
a little shake this way, we can actually get Ellen’s
card to reverse, as well. Now, here’s what I
love about Ellen. She has a way of finding us
and bringing us all together. And her 4 has found its
way right by your queen. What? Oh my gosh. Now, this is what’s killer. Now watch this. I’m going to take
these two cards. And if you hold the two like
this, and you square them up, and you hold them
tight, you can actually get them to kind of– you can
square them up this way, right? Can you put your hand out flat? And Ellen, if you would,
just take your hand, and put your hand on top. Keep them squared up. OK. And it’s just a snap. Ellen, pick your hand up. Like I said, Ellen does
magic, brings us together. This is one card completely. You can tear that. These two cards are
completely torn. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Now, look, I know what
you guys are thinking. Ellen, you had a free choice. Ashley, you had a free choice. I got a giant card right here. I mean, it’s hard
to miss, right? I made a prediction. I thought the two cards
that would be picked– Ellen, your queen of hearts,
Ashley, your 4 of clubs, and that they would
come together. Now, let the truth be known. The magic is not these cards. The magic’s in Ellen,
because she finds a way to bring us all together. We know your husband’s
deployed, and we know that he’s going to miss
the birth of your child. But this is where Ellen can
make the real magic happen. So I’ve never done
anything like this. I’ve never done
anything this big. But I think we might be able
to make something happen. Do me a favor and turn around. [DRUM ROLL] [CRYING] . [MUSIC PLAYING] [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] [CRYING] Oh my God, I missed you so much. [CRYING] I missed you so much. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Hi. Hi. Thank you for what you do. Thank you so much. That’s Jon. Thank you. All right, more with Ashley
and Steve after this. We’re back with
Ashley and her husband Steve, who has been
overseas for six months. And we just– Jon made them appear. [LAUGHTER] That’s the best magic
trick you’ve ever done. You know what? Every time I see these, I cry. So I’m holding it
back right now. That was the coolest thing ever,
coolest thing I’ve ever done. I love doing this. And I just was like, oh,
I guess I’ll pick you. [LAUGHTER] Oh, I’m so glad you did. Uh, me too, because if
it was somebody else, and then Steve appears,
you’re like, who’s that? [LAUGHTER] So you’re excited. I was scared I was going
to push you into labor. But you’re OK, right? I’m OK. OK, good. I’m glad. This must be really hard to
be– and especially, now you’re here for the baby. But you were going to be away. That must be really hard. Yeah. She’s the superstar. It’s easier for me
to go and deploy, because I do a lot
of training for it. But she’s back here
doing the hard stuff. She’s taking care of the kids. She’s going to school. And she’s been doing this
pregnancy the entire time by herself. She’s my super hero. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] I agree. It’s amazing what
you have to do. All right, I have been studying
a little bit of magic, too. I have a trick, because
Jon had a trick. And so I have a trick, as well. Andy? All right. [LAUGHTER] All right, I want you to
think, think of a card. And you think of a card, OK? What did you think of? 9 of clubs. Yep. And what did you think of? The 6 of hearts. That’s right. OK. [LAUGHTER] Ashley, my amazing friends at
Cheerios know all about you. And because you’re
doing good, and it makes the heart feel good,
Honey Nut Cheerios and I want to give you and
your family $50,000. Oh my God. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Oh my God. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Thank you, Ellen. Oh, you’re welcome. You’re welcome. Oh my God. I want to hear about
your acts of good. So go to my website. We’ll be right back. Oh my God. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Hi, I’m Andy. Ellen asked me to remind you
to subscribe to her channel, so you can see more
awesome videos, like videos of me getting scared or
saying embarrassing things, like ball peen hammer, and
also some videos of Ellen and other celebrities, if
you’re into that sort of thing. Ah! [BLEEP] God! [BLEEP]
