When I was young, doing a stage competition act, the idea of having something appear in your mouth (a card, rose, knife, etc.) was something I always wanted. But I was never able to choreograph the movements to make it work effectively.
Once I realized that my competition act wasn't going to pay the bills, I started working restaurants. My ambitious card routine ends up with the card between my lips. It's a routine I still do, but usually only by request. Even though I know it gets a great response (hard not to after thousands of performances), I know that having a card in my mouth can be seen as extremely distasteful. So I will never do it anywhere food is being served or if I'm being paid. I don't need to take the chance of grossing out my audience.
One other thing I should mention, in case it's not obvious from the demo video: you cannot do this surrounded. I don't think I'm giving anything away by telling you there's a moment when the card changes that should not be seen (otherwise, you would let it be seen). Because the whole thing is covered by your torso, you'll have decent angles, but you want to make sure they can't see the card when you're turned around.
So, on one level, I think this effect is very cool. But I'm not sure I would do it in most of my performing situations.
Actually, I take that back… it would be just fine for a manipulation act as a cool card change.
Ultimately, the decision of whether or not it'll work for your audiences must be up to you.
