Part Street-Magic, Part Con-Artist

I saw this a few weeks ago on Wise Bread, and wanted to share it. Remember "These are not the 'droids you're looking for" from ol' Ben Kenobi in Star Wars? Well, Derren Brown is the real deal. I'm not sure what to make of it, but it's interesting. Either way, a hustle this good would have to be showcased in NYC.

The link below contains another video, though I'm not completely convinced. BTW, I finished the first paragraph before finishing the second video -- I guess he's seen Star Wars once or twice as well!
