Pick-pocketing is an ancient art, made famous in classic books like Charles Dicken’s Oliver. But pick-pocketing is not a skill used only by thieves and criminals, many magicians use the skills in their performances, something that goes back to the first advertised magician pickpocket Fred Brezin in 1906.
Today Apollo Robbins is one of the most famous pickpockets, basing himself in Las Vegas, where many famous magicians travel to see his uncanny abilities.
Through sleight of hand, distraction, and charm, Robbins makes things appear and disappear as if out of thin air, replacing a mans wallet with a fried chicken leg, and having a woman’s engagement ring appear attached to her husband’s key chain in his pocket.
In this video, he shows how he does some of his tricks, with a step by step walk through of stealing a man’s watch. I was amazed at how a few simple moves and strategies can be so effective.
