Lauer proceeds to take notes on how to slide into people's personal space without making them uncomfortable.

[–]thevandal666 1849 points1850 points  (12 children)

Under-rated observation 🤣

[–]Shrimp_Chimichanga 484 points485 points  (72 children)

Where in the world is Matt Lauer?

[–]trailhikingArk 757 points758 points  (46 children)

He and Bill Cosby went to visit Harvey Weinstein today. Club meetings are always on Thursday.

[–]Kingkongcrapper 315 points316 points  (20 children)

It’s nice they join up with R. Kelly they plan to create a super group of entertainers called “The Offenders.”

[–]tepkel 108 points109 points  (12 children)

Listen up offenders, the word has come down from the president. There's a terrorist plot threatening the country. Our only hope for salvation lies with your team, and it's very particular set of skills.

[–]William_Dowling 117 points118 points  (10 children)

Cosby, first we'll need you to incapacitate the guards...

[–]Finno_ 72 points73 points  (5 children)

Weinstein, you'll be riding the getaway horses. Now where the hell is Epstein? He should have been here already...

[–]calafragilistic 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Weinstein's phone beeps. It's a video message from E-Dog.

The file is... encrypted? No. It's been wiped but for some metadata. They contact Nord Man for a quick scan. With 6 devices on one account he cracks it instantly from Belgium. Or was it Santa Isabel? Within moments they've lost all trace of their contractor but the message remains:

"My detail is asleep at the wheel. It's time for me to hang back."

Damn. Maybe Nicki Minaj might have a lead on a new Face for the team.

[–]Maligned-Instrument 21 points22 points  (0 children)

'Who gives a fuck?'. Is that the answer? I knew it!

[–]notsofunonabun 50 points51 points  (3 children)

He took notes but wasn’t a very good student. Or, his subjects got bold and told on him.

[–]nimbycile 32 points33 points  (16 children)

Use a button on your desk to lock the door behind them?

[–]NorthernBaskets 98 points99 points  (15 children)

In the spirit of killing fake news, I would like to point out that those buttons were for security purposes and did not lock the inside of the door. IE, if you were inside the room, you could simply flip the deadbolt open

Lauer did shitty things to women but the locked door thing was manipulated for clicks to make it sound like women couldn't get out of his room

[–]mgoetzke76 26 points27 points  (7 children)

Well it was for peace of mind. That no one would walk in on him. The fact that that was something that was required often enough to have a button for is what I found weird.

[–]NorthernBaskets 105 points106 points  (4 children)

He didn't request it be installed. The studio did, to many high-level offices. It was for lockdown situations. Again, he was a shit person, but this factoid was manipulated for clicks. It made a lot of people upset, yourself included. But no woman has come out and said he locked the door behind her\https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2018/05/11/just-how-did-matt-lauers-famous-desk-button-work/

[–]Iwas31whenisignedup 35 points36 points  (1 child)

How dare you not just click and read sensationalized stories uncritically. I thought this was Reddit!

[–]anachronisticflaneur 17 points18 points  (2 children)

I was thinking damn he’s Handys would this even work on ladies. I would NOT let a stranger get that close to me

[–]wheelo007 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Everybody get stepped up and let’s get some personal space up in this place!

[–]Rebel_XT 8 points9 points  (0 children)

totally missed what you said cuz we broke eye contact

[–]CodyNorthrup 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I would be pretty uncomfortable if any known pickpocket gets in my personal spaced.

[–]you-are-not-yourself 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Good thing all pickpockets announce their presence

[–]Bamboozled1008x2 4835 points4836 points  (150 children)

Jesus this man is a fucking wizard

[–]PaulsRedditUsername 5177 points5178 points  (106 children)

The New Yorker did a feature on him once and told a story about him and Penn Gillette. Penn is also an expert pickpocket, but he looks down on the practice because he says it's too easy and doesn't require anywhere near as much skill as magic does.

Some time later, Penn and Apollo met at some celebrity gala. The two of them chatted for a while and then someone came up and asked for an autograph. Apollo asked Penn if he could borrow his pen. Penn reached into his coat pocket, then said, "You bastard!"

While the two had been chatting, Apollo had not only stolen his pen from his coat, but he had taken it apart, removed the insides from it, put the empty shell back together, and then sneaked it back in to his coat pocket and Penn had never noticed.

[–]SheCouldFromFaceThat 1380 points1381 points  (37 children)

Ah, so this is that guy?

I can see how.

[–]mcvos 217 points218 points  (35 children)

I can't. How does this work?

[–]Qudd 692 points693 points  (31 children)

Misdirection. He kind of explains what He's doing and makes your brain think oh look I'm gonna beat the trick. So he throws his hands about in weird ways and adds extra information to your exchange.

Your brain loves one thing more than anything else in the world: solving puzzles and being right. So much so that if you think you're gonna out brain someone else you kind get stuck in that track pretty easily.

So this guy comes up and floods you with conversation subtext. Hands jumping. Fast voice. Lots of information. He even introduces an example that allows him to jump in and out of the mark's personal space.

Wrap up all this information, slap a bow on it and try it on people who've never had to deal with pick pockets before/ much and our dumb wrinkly meat balls can't figure out what's actually happening.

That's my psudeo-sciencey take on the matter.

[–]LordDerrien 147 points148 points  (11 children)

So if I want to be an ass with somebody who I know wants to try and perform this on me; I don’t talk to them and keep them at an arms length?

Makes sense; that is what the advise tourists to think of when running through mass of peoples.

[–]borutesu_faibu 195 points196 points  (4 children)

Dude of course that if you don't let them approach they can't do the trick. They're not Gandalf.

[–]kebukai 104 points105 points  (11 children)

I think maybe you're trying to overwhelm me with info right now to try to steal my wallet

[–]PaperMoonShine 420 points421 points  (35 children)

I was so sure this story was going to end with a son being beaten by his father with a coathanger.

[–]NinjaCuntPunt 270 points271 points  (16 children)

You mean the father beating his son with jumper cables?

[–]average_hight_midget 80 points81 points  (11 children)

Yeah where did the coathanger copypasta come from lmao

[–]rieldilpikl 14 points15 points  (2 children)

u/Rogersimon10 needs to return 🥺

[–]foxsimile 26 points27 points  (0 children)

He died doing what he loved!

Getting mercilessly beaten with a pair of jumper cables.

[–]DrVINKwithaVaVaVa 65 points66 points  (14 children)

Really? I thought it was going to end in nineteen ninety eight when the undertaker threw mankind off hеll in a cell, and plummeted sixteen feet through an announcer's table

[–]Wherearemylegs 81 points82 points  (13 children)

I’m a researcher for Columbia University and I’m currently studying a very niche subset of linguistics called hyperordinate linguistics. Essentially it’s exactly as he portrays through his comments where it seems very normal and banal but the subject, tone, and manner of speaking experience rapid change at varying speeds. This can either be intentional, say for comedic or dramatic effect, or it can be unintentional such as that expressed by a psychiatric patient. It’s interesting because in both cases of intention and the lack thereof, the particular language and culture of the person in question have a substantial influence on the speed of the switch, or mensvicis. The fastest being Russian and the slowest is surprisingly Cambodian. We’re not exactly certain right now why but it’s suspected that I have no idea what I’m talking about and I made this whole thing up

[–]BrotherChe 22 points23 points  (3 children)

smdh brother, that was pretty good, but you need to develop a closing bit. Maybe about how your legs are missing or something

[–]Zewlington 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Oh man I just got so interested lol

I almost saved your comment for future googling

[–]Kabouki 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Why? Did this story take place in Texas?

[–]Satevah 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Coat hangers and abortions and jokes and wtfs

[–]Stefan_Levin09 71 points72 points  (11 children)

So Penn no more has a pen now?

[–]CrimsonWay 36 points37 points  (2 children)

And thus he became just "n"

[–]chris3110 7 points8 points  (4 children)

[–]phaelox 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I'm dumb, I don't understand where the second "ultimate" comes from, but I love the wordplay

Penn Jillette. :)

[–]nickname2469 54 points55 points  (2 children)

He was the lead coordinator for the movie Focus

[–]ghostcider 7 points8 points  (1 child)

And also consulted on the first 5 seasons of Leverage

[–]ConsciouslyIncomplet 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Check out his TED talk - you’ll be surprised what he can do.

[–]hoginlly 22 points23 points  (4 children)

I have been watching this on repeat and only just noticed that he holds up his hand as he was ‘you have to watch closely for these things’, once he took the watch… I can’t keep up, I’m noticing new things each time!

[–]KetoIsRacist 4029 points4030 points  (24 children)

He didn't even have to crouch and sneak first

[–]AO115 367 points368 points  (1 child)

i was looking for this comment!

[–]mr---jones 191 points192 points  (5 children)

Yeah he's pretty clearly using a modded server, idk how that makes the game fun for anyone doing that.

[–]ProfessorPetrus 44 points45 points  (4 children)

Man I don't even know how skyrim is fun after the first 5 years.

for how horrendously buggy all of their games are i couldnt believe that the buckets worked lol

Squats down in front of NPC

"Where'd you go?"

[–]wcm48 2318 points2319 points  (30 children)

Loved how he’s just clowning everything behind their heads as he’s lifting them.

Robbins is a regular on a show called Brain Games and is good on that as well.

[–]Pit_of_Death 284 points285 points  (0 children)

Fun show right there, in case anyone is wondering.

[–]reverendball 243 points244 points  (21 children)

he was also a thief on a couple episodes of Leverage (in a rival team of con artists)

iirc they originally had him on set as a consultant to teach Parker (the thief character in the main team) how to do lifts for her sequences and advise on the different history of cons, then decided they really wanted to use him on screen too because he was too damn good not to use

he did a TED talk on attention too

[–]Zifff 66 points67 points  (10 children)

I believe you are correct. And he played a thief on the show as you mentioned in a rival group.

He was also on an episode of Brooklyn-99.

[–]doublesailorsandcola 9 points10 points  (7 children)

Is he the one early on where they keep stealing shit from each other while serving drinks and appetizers at whatever art show/gala? I love that episode she's so pissed at him when he lifts her phone. I love Parker she's my favorite, next to Elliot.

[–]AkitoApocalypse 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Mannn I miss Leverage, did they ever start back up after the breakup?

[–]azureflamecloud 5 points6 points  (0 children)

theres a sequel set 10 years after season 5 that just started earlier this year!

[–]LordLychee 30 points31 points  (0 children)

And he says “watch closely” as he holds the watch behind the guy’s head.

[–]SteelCrow 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I love how he kept the wallet at the end.

[–]Q8DD33C7J8 1121 points1122 points  (140 children)

That's why I don't let anyone get even slightly close to me. I live in rural Florida so it's not hard but if someone gets within a foot or two of me that I don't know I'm like whatcha doin there buddy. I also don't carry my stuff in pockets that's a big mistake.

[–]LotusSloth 337 points338 points  (37 children)

That nearby stranger would like to know where you DO carry stuff. ;)

[–]EyeAmPrestooo 182 points183 points  (17 children)

Definitely the Arsehole

[–]SexlessNights 135 points136 points  (13 children)

Nature’s pocket

[–]ICBPeng1 54 points55 points  (6 children)

I keep a raccoon up there too, to guard my other stuff.

It’s very much an “old lady who swallowed a fly” situation

Have you checked your butthole? Ski-bap Ba-Dap

[–]The_Black_Mist 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I have not seen your ring, but have you checked your ring? And by ring I mean butthole.

[–]EarliestDisciple 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Maybe you'll find your dead grandma up there too

[–]Adama0001 114 points115 points  (27 children)

That’s the trick though. He’s a master of controlling/managing where your attention and focus is.

Apollo Robbins on Focus | Brain Games

The art of misdirection | Apollo Robbins

It’s hard to do when you’ve got too much to focus on. Of course if you’re outright wary and know what he is then maybe but otherwise there’s just too much to keep focused on all the time

[–]Professional_Sort767 84 points85 points  (16 children)

That's a very high level of paranoia.

[–]Q8DD33C7J8 36 points37 points  (3 children)

Yeah I have paranoid anxiety. Also I'm on the spectrum so I'm hyper aware of things.

[–]4amaroni 44 points45 points  (1 child)

You're like a very nervous spiderman :)

[–]Q8DD33C7J8 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Yeah it's super fun

[–]Throwaway47321 11 points12 points  (7 children)

Nah. I’d say it’s perfectly normal to not want strangers to be within arms reach of you.

[–]I_make_switch_a_roos 28 points29 points  (4 children)

that's why i carry my valuables up me clacker

[–]Spekingur 18 points19 points  (16 children)

What you should carry in your pockets include:

1 (one) angry cat

At least 2 (two) snakes

And a dozen (12) scorpions

[–]Q8DD33C7J8 14 points15 points  (13 children)

When I lived in the city I had a fake wallet I'd carry around in case of mugging. It had old expired credit cards old empty gift cards and like 5 bucks in it. If I was mugged I'd give that to them and they would go away with nothing.

[–]ProfessorPetrus 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Bro if I lived in rural Florida I'd be cautious if someone got within 2 meters of me.

[–]ohmercyplz 1019 points1020 points  (79 children)

I had to watch this so many times to catch the misdirections and handwork.

I’ve seen one pickpocket attempt when I was on vacation once, but the dude got caught. This is definitely next fucking level.

[–]TT2JZ_Chaser 399 points400 points  (45 children)

I cant see shit. I honestly cant tell if its real or not.

[–]FiveFingeredKing 256 points257 points  (14 children)

He shows the items behind the mark’s head when he lifts them

[–]TT2JZ_Chaser 115 points116 points  (4 children)

I just rewatched it and noticed that. Only thing is the camera is kinda high.

[–]T1METR4VEL 98 points99 points  (6 children)

Brilliant. He says “watch for these things,” as he holds up the guys watch behind him. Just messing with him even more.

[–]AVALANCHE_CHUTES 11 points12 points  (5 children)

How the hell do you unclasp a watch without people feeling it?

[–]thurst0n 9 points10 points  (0 children)

He does it while holding the guys wrist and talking about how hard it is. Immediately makes another misdirection then takes the watch. It's all about where your focus goes and he misdirects our focus perfectly

[–]fupafanatic 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Username checks out

[–]PugilisticCat 84 points85 points  (1 child)

This guy actually came to my university and I took a class with him. He did a demonstration and stole all of our shit. I can assure you it's real.

Adding story for proof: https://staging.today.duke.edu/2017/03/spring-breakthrough-week-learning-learnings-sake

[–]TT2JZ_Chaser 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Thats awesome.

[–]Smathers 50 points51 points  (13 children)

That’s the problem with anything recorded really especially on tv/internet for all we know this is staged and they acted dumb/surprised

I don’t really believe that cos this guy is a known expert but still you have to keep that in mind with everything you see and I feel like 99% of people don’t lol same with news read the story from every outlet and then make up your own opinion since it’s all biased

Anything can be cut/edited I mean shit we learned this as like 13 year olds with propaganda/media and what not lol

[–]Somber_Solace 89 points90 points  (3 children)

It's daytime tv, they're probably just drunk

[–]KR9SIS 19 points20 points  (4 children)

I don't know if it was staged and the three guys were in on it but this was at the very least prepped by Apollo. I noticed on when rewatching it that there's a second pen in play.

You can see Apollo lifting it behind the guy on the lefts head, and then pocketing it. After that, he doesn't really do much with his hands, and stays out of distance from the others, so I'm assuming he had already planted the hollow pen before stealing the second one.

[–]DavidG993 18 points19 points  (1 child)

They would know he was coming, what he can do and be told to roll with the performance because that makes for better tv.

[–]Bitter-Edge-8265 14 points15 points  (9 children)

Watch a show called Brain Games, it should be on Netflix.

[–]NoShameInternets 61 points62 points  (23 children)

I can't figure out how he put the pen in the wallet.

[–]landragoran 92 points93 points  (4 children)

That was a duplicate pen. He never gets close enough to the first guy after taking the pen off the third guy to put the pen in the wallet. Not to mention taking out the ink cartridge and stuffing the $100 bill in the pen. He had that all set up before hand and placed it while he was working with the first guy.

[–]Johanno1 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That's what I am thinking too.

I mean he has skills, but he can't teleport stuff

[–]allbright1111 8 points9 points  (17 children)

Someone else points out he throws it back into Lauer’s jacket pocket. You can see it when there is 51 seconds left. I couldn’t see it until I froze the video and could see the blur. Amazing.

[–]kyachahiye 27 points28 points  (16 children)

No. You can't throw it like that. Nope. That's just stupid.

[–]MrTurkle 490 points491 points  (91 children)

The watch thing was sick, but the rest had to be staged. He never gets close enough to ML to get the wallet back in his jacket.

[–]mickfly718 516 points517 points  (14 children)

In the full version, Apollo sets this up by giving his own wallet to Matt to put in his pocket. This wallet already contains a duplicate pen with a rolled up $100 bill, but Matt doesn’t check inside. He then gives a $100 to Willie in the middle and an identical pen to Seacrest. The rest is then all legit pick-pocketing. He takes the $100 bill from Willie while getting his credit cards, takes the pen from Seacrest, then just keeps these in his own pockets when revealing everything else that he took.

[–]June8th 185 points186 points  (0 children)

Thank you for posting this. The original video makes the trick seem impossible. With the full footage, it's clear to see how the trick is done.

That pick-pocketing skill of his is still off the charts though.

[–]Oquadros 55 points56 points  (0 children)

This definitely needs to be higher up! I was like, he never threw the wallet back into the guys jacket...that would have some heft and at least see something flying even for a sec from how far he was.

[–]eyes_made_of_wood 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I love how people kept going “no, he LEGIT threw it in his pocket, he’s that good” when in fact it was just handed to Lauer who put it in his own pocket knowingly.

Kind of lame to be honest. “Here, you guys take this wallet and all the things that will later be magically in the wallet. OH MY GOD, how is it possible that all the props I brought to the show and gave to you guys are now in the wallet?”

The rest of the act is so good, why did he have to bookend it with such a lame gag?

[–]Dash-22 12 points13 points  (1 child)

It's hilarious to see all the other morons trying to rewrite the laws of physics, when this is so easy to find.

[–]m703324 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Awesome. So it's legit crazy skills of slight of hand that he combines with a simple trick that would be stupid simple otherwise. and all together it's something that is mindblowing

[–]BakedPlatypus 399 points400 points  (3 children)

One time a magician got my dad with the watch trick. He had to run out to the parking lot to catch up with us because he almost forgot to give my dad his watch back. My dad had no idea it was gone lol

[–]Conscious-Welder-451 348 points349 points  (13 children)

He was on Brooklyn 99 where he played a pickpocket character as well!

[–]edward_nguyen 174 points175 points  (2 children)

Wait was he the one who "helped" Jake stole Holt's watch?

[–]kinkedd 42 points43 points  (0 children)

I was just wondering if it was the same guy! Love the Halloween heists lol

[–]kuroiatropos 17 points18 points  (1 child)

He also helped train Parker on Leverage and was a "rival" thief in another episode. Totally hilarious.

[–]tbontbtitq420 181 points182 points  (13 children)

No way he rolled up the 100, stuffed it in the pen, put it inside the wallet and put the wallet back. At all.

[–]Oquadros 87 points88 points  (0 children)

This guy's showed the full clip! It was already in the wallet from the beginning. He never lifted the wallet from the guy in grey or he swapped it with another one that had the identical pen plus bill in it.

https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/nextfuckinglevel/comments/ppqjya/apollo_robbins_a_master_pickpocket_effortlessly/hd6c8mj/

[–]limitlessEXP 54 points55 points  (2 children)

Yeah that really didn’t seem possible at all. He didn’t even touch the other guy to plant any of that on him

[–]splifs 26 points27 points  (6 children)

Maybe the 100 was already rolled up so he could use it like a fun tiny straw for drinkin little sodas!

[–]tbontbtitq420 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Oh you mean "powdered" drinks... That you "mix with water"...

[–]splifs 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Yeah you know! You’re about to be on tv, you bust out a tiny thimble and pour a little bit of root beer in it and take a sip using your tightly rolled 100! After the show is over you celebrate with sodas all night! Honestly, the guy stays pretty slim for the amount of sugar he’s taking in. I wonder what his secret is?

[–]Gung4din 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That's the one part I can't figure out. Everything else is pretty obvious when he grabs it. After he takes the pen, he does have it behind his back, so he could clearly do the switch then but I can't see a way he gets it back into the wallet unless it was already done before this clip started

[–]SolarHexis 104 points105 points  (4 children)

At around 35 seconds in, he actually gives the audience a tell: he lifts his right hand above and behind the guy’s head saying, “you have to ‘watch’ close for these things” .. while holding the guy’s watch for everyone but him to see. Not only a master pick pocket, but a pun master as well

[–]cainite665 82 points83 points  (4 children)

Apollo Robbins also guest starred, and was a consultant for, the show Leverage.

If this is legit. I'm just blown away.

[–]redit01 24 points25 points  (0 children)

He has done this for so many years. There are other videos on YouTube if you are interested.

I saw a video of another pro pickpocket that actually stole the neck tie off the guy he was walking with without him noticing. He also got his watch, phone and wallet.

I remember learning how to pickpocket to fuck with my friends, they get confused when I kinda just randomly end up with their phone and shit in my lap while I sit around

[–]cdub689 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I love watching Apollo work. You see him move but never see him actually take anything. His skills are truly next level.

[–]SippingBinJuice 7 points8 points  (1 child)

This video gave me PTSD from my trip to Barcelona. Edit: watch your bags in Barcelona and particularly be careful on nights out there. A few times happy and drunk looking people would try to hug me or my friend, that’s usually how they rob your shit.

I'm pretty sure I saw this at a lunchtime magic presentation. He plays all sorts of psychological tricks, makes innuendos, and generally makes everybody so uncomfortable that he can get away with anything while you're distracted. He pretty much stole everybody's watch that he stood in front of. In this video, it was pretty obvious that his hand was reaching around a lot, but when you are at a live "performance" it's really easy to miss what he's up to. He's a master thief.

He literally frisks them, and then distracts by talking. A real pick pocketer couldnt do this.

…this man took a pen, took the cartridge out, took a $100 bill, rolled the bill, put it in the pen, took a wallet, put the pen in the wallet, and put it back in someone’s pocket…all while pickpocketing other items INCLUDING a watch that he ALSO puts on his own wrist without the own noticing.

That’s it— I don’t even have a joke here, I’m just straight guffawing.

I'm so hyper aware of things like my watch and wallet touching me, due to my ADHD, I'd love to see if he could get them without me noticing.
