Video: Magician is caught speeding, gets out of speeding ticket by performing Rubik's Cube tricks for officers
This is just magic... kind of.
Fair play to Steven Brundage. While returning home from a party in New York, the magician was pulled over by the cops for speeding and managed to wangle his way out of getting a ticket by performing magic tricks using his trusty Rubik's Cube.
Here's what Steven wrote on his YouTube page about the event:
"December 5th around 3am I was pulled over doing 42 in a 30 MPH. I told the cop I was coming from a Holiday Party in NYC. He asked why I had all the cards in my car and I told him I was a magician. He then asked me to show him a magic trick.
I'm glad to say I left without a ticket."
Now, maybe it's just the cynic in us, but we're not entirley convinced that this is all legit. We never actually see the cops in question (albeit briefly in the first 20 seconds), we never actually see the magician talking about getting or not getting a speeding ticket and, most importantly, WE CAN'T DO MAGIC SO WE DON'T BELIEVE IT'S REAL.
*JOE goes back to trying to figure out how to solve a Rubik's Cube, falls over, gets speeding ticket*
Still though, it's good craic so sit back and enjoy...
