This trick involves you to make the card return to the top of the deck using a false under cut and then a crimp. The Crimp is very important to most tricks. You bend the card so it doesn't get attached with the rest of the deck when you bend the rubber band across the whole deck, it gets left behind until you do the second move which puts the rubber band into position. Remember to watch the videos correctly to make sure you have the technique correct.
