This is Apollo Robbins.
Here's the moment he stunned Willie Geist on NBC's Today show.
In the course of a three minute routine, he'd managed to slip off his watch and wear it without him noticing.
At one point he'd done this.
It wasn't even the best bit of the routine: he'd not only stolen a pen and a $100 bill; he'd stashed the bill inside the pen.
Over seven million people have watched this routine on YouTube.
He is probably best known for an encounter with Jimmy Carter's Secret Service detail in 2001. While Carter was at dinner, Robbins struck up a conversation with several of his Secret Service men. Within a few minutes, he had emptied the agents' pockets of pretty much everything but their guns. Robbins brandished a copy of Carter's itinerary, and when an agent snatched it back he said, "You don't have the authorization to see that!" When the agent felt for his badge, Robbins produced it and handed it back. Then he turned to the head of the detail and handed him his watch, his badge, and the keys to the Carter motorcade.
So how does he do it? Robbins told Green:
You can see how Robbins creates a point of focus for his target.
The results are quite astounding.
In this TED talk (from 5 mins in) you can see how utterly powerless people are in the face of his skills.
No matter how many times Robbins tells the participant what he's going to do, he's still far too quick for him.
