* The Amazing Johnathan would lampoon this in his act, telling the person to think of a card, then shuffle the deck as many times as they wanted. When they hand the deck back to them, he confirms they've only thought of the card, they shuffled the deck as many times as they wanted, and thus there was no way he could possibly find their card. When the person said "that's correct", Johnathan would declare "Well, fuck that then!" and throw the deck over his shoulder, scattering cards everywhere.

* A scene in ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'' has Bugs distracting Elmer from getting the "window" Queen-of-Diamonds card by hiding it in a deck of cards and giving him the wrong ones while DJ and Kate escaped.

** Another episode featured Joey having Chandler select a card and, with chandler still holding the card, pulling another one from the deck and saying "Is this your card?" Rather than point out that he's still holding his card Chandler just says "...yes"

As with SawAWomanInHalf, real trick to this trick is well enough known that fictional depictions may feel free to discuss it. The clever part is not where it appears to be: it's not that the magician has a secret way of detecting which card the mark has selected, it's that the magician has a way (a technique called the Magician's Force) of making sure the mark picks the card he wants them to pick.

* In ''FrankAndErnest'', Frank had Ernest do this once -- and found it by checking the early edition of the paper.
* Jason Fox does this with Peter in FoxTrot. Peter quickly figures out how Jason does it- every card in the deck is the same.

* In ''Film/SwingTime,'' this is Pop's favorite magic trick. It's implied that he accomplishes it by slipping the ace into the deck when he cuts. This becomes ChekhovsSkill when he uses it to beat a marked deck to win a bandleader's contract.
