Apollo Robbins: The Art of Misdirection

He asks you what he is wearing, he asks you about your own cell phone all the while stealing a watch, some money, placing a toy shrimp in a man’s front pocket and changing his own shirt.


This is just the newest video from TED where self-reported pickpocket Apollo Robbins is showing you the limits of your human attention span. Entertaining and astounding, the audience and the viewer will only see what is willfully shared.

Lighting speed and misdirection leave you disoriented and wanting to know more as to what really happened right before your eyes while you were supposedly watching Apollo Robbins give a speech.

Prepare for lots of rewinding and enjoy!
