Apollo Robbins Shakes Down the Today Show

Before he started stealing things, we assumed the most exciting part of this video would be learning that Matt Lauer "doesn't carry a wallet," but we were so wrong.

This guy!


Damn...Is his name Oliver Twist?@a


This was great! It was a little hard to picture how he did it when reading the article, I guess he really does just get all up in your bidness.

Oh WOW. I read the article the Hairpin linked to a while back, but I thought that since this was a video, I'd be able to see when he took things--the only thing I noticed at all was the pen! BLACK MAGIC.

@Faintly Macabre That's it! That's the thing! Those guys are EXPECTING him to steal from them, and it still happens without them noticing. Pickpocketing in a crowd is one thing.

you're a kitty!

The watch though



Okay, but seriously, HOW DID HE GET THE PEN INTO MATT LAUER'S WALLET? I've watched it three times and he doesn't come anywhere near Matt after he has the pen. The ONLY EXPLANATION is sorcery.

I am fine with sorcery as our explanation.

She was a retail whore

@Elsajeni "A wizard did it" is my go-to explanation for pretty much everything. The Simpsons writers were onto something, there.

Adam Green's longish profile of this prestidigitationist is well worth the read over at The New Yorker (http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2013/01/07/130107fa_fact_green?currentPage=all)
