The art of misdirection

The art of misdirection | Collingwood Comedy | Scoop.it
Hailed as the greatest pickpocket in the world, Apollo Robbins studies the quirks of human behavior as he steals your watch. In a hilarious demonstration, Robbins samples the buffet of the TEDGlobal 2013 audience, showing how the flaws in our perception make it possible to swipe a wallet and leave it on its owner’s shoulder while they remain clueless.

mspenglish10's insight:

Did you like the speech? Why or why not?

I enjoyed this speech because of it's humour and effectiveness to deceive me.

What did you learn from this speech?

I learned that it is very simple to take advantage of someone's attention, which could lead to a missing watch.

How will you utilize what you learned in your everyday life?

I will make sure I am more aware of my surroundings when I am in an unknown neighbourhood or even school. I may even try some of his techniques on my friends as a joke.

Will you adopt any strategies you observed the speaker using during their speech?

The way he included the audience and by inviting one up on stage he kept them interested. He induced some laughter from the crowd as well.
