The $20 bill was redesigned in 2003. To complete this trick, you need one of the bills printed with this updated design. Turn a $20 bill so you are looking at the side with an image of the White House. First, fold the bill in half lengthwise. You should be able to see the words "The United States of America." Next, fold the left half up and away from you. This means that the words "The United" should now be facing down, and you should see the number 20 from the bottom half of the bill. Now, do the same with the right side of the bill. The word "America" should now be facing down, and you should see the number 20 from the other side of the bottom half of the bill. Flip the folded bill over to reveal what looks like two thin buildings with smoke coming out of them. This image, which to many looks like the Twin Towers, is formed by the White House building and trees depicted on the $20 bill.
