Apollo Robbins in Forbes
Posted by Jonathan Bayme on 11 December 2010
Gentleman Thief and theory11 artist Apollo Robbins is featured in three Forbes.com videos today. Apollo's unrivaled skill as a pickpocket is dissected with particular focus on the science of misdirection.
Apollo discusses his background and how he got the name "the gentleman thief" - as well as touching on the basics of how cons and scams work.
Of course, no interview with Apollo is complete without showing his skills firsthand. In one video, Apollo takes reporter Josh Wolfe's pen right off the table.
In another video, he kindly "borrows" Josh's wallet, cell phone, and corporate American Express card - which is later revealed inside of Apollo's sock.
