Here’s what happens:

The magician introduces four cards; three blue-backed Jokers and one red-backed Queen of Spades. The cards are shown on the front and the back, and then the Queen is put into the pocket, and the magician challenges the spectators to catch them sneak the Queen back into the packet not once but twice. With no moves, the red-backed Queen of Spades appears back amongst the three jokers. The Queen is again placed into the pocket, and the magician notes that this time they will have to use misdirection to sneak the Queen back into the packet. The cards are counted again, and this time a bright yellow card that says “LOOK” on it appears amongst the blue-backed Jokers. That card is also put away, and this time, without any funny moves, a red-backed card has once again appeared in the packet. The magician then admits that they cheated, but not just once. They cheated twice. The red-backed card is turned over to reveal it is now the Ace of Spades. The remaining blue-backed cards are turned over, and the jokers have magically transformed into the remaining Aces.
