here is me riffle stacking how good are you? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFfYr-OiXcw
That's good. Avoid the dead drop though : try to riffle ALL the cards, even the last ones.
Check your video out at 0:17. You're stacking for 4 players, yet your block on the right hand side is easily 3 to 4 times that thickness. Seeing blocks like that is a giveaway that something funny is going on. Your block doesn't need to be that thick, you only need to keep 5 cards stacked (ace, 3 cards, then second ace).
Also, the tapping of the deck is strange to me. It screams magic, and in gambling demos you'll want to emulate real play as closely as possible. I don't recall ever seeing a dealer or a poker player anywhere tap the ends of the deck like that, only magicians.
