He made the legal consequences disappear. Magician Steven Brundage said he was driving to his home in upstate New York from a gig in New York City at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning when he was pulled over by Scotia police. Officers said he was doing 42 miles per hour in a 30-mph zone. Then, Brundage said, an officer noticing a bunch of playing cards in his car. asked the trickster for a little sleight of hand. What followed is shown in the video above, filmed by one of the officers.
Brundage told the New York Daily News that he was "99.9 percent sure" he wouldn't get a ticket after he showed them his Rubik's cube trick. In it, he tosses a scrambled cube in the air, but when it lands, the toy is arranged by color again. "How did you do that?" on officer asks. Scotia police Chief Peter Frisoni told the News it probably wasn't the magic trick that got Brundage off the hook. Frisoni said, at that time of night, his officers are more concerned with reckless or drunk driving, not speeding. Department officials did not immediately respond to HuffPost's queries.
The moral of the story is cars are dangerous death boxes and magicians are under appreciated entertainers.
Cops are on fire these days! Just can't stop won't stop.
Whole world all over our shit about shooting innocent black people left and right? Well hows about we self-release a video of us letting a white boy magician get himself out of trouble with a little sleight of hand? It's called Pubic Relations, idiots. See, we're not racist or unruly. You bring magic to the table and we'll turn in to little birds feeding out of the palm of your hands. It just so happens that this magic guy was a white. So what? Are you insinuating that only white people can do magic? Well look who's racist now, asshole.
P.S. This really doesn't do much to combat against my argument that cops lack in the IQ department. Hilarious imagining these cops just blown away by this guy's trick, being like, "holy shit, that was awesome man! How did you...? Where the...? What the fuck did we even pull you over for anyway? Totally forget, ha... welp, have a good one, buddy. One day I'm gonna figure out how you did that! One day, my friend! ..... (gets back in his patrol car, sighs) ah man, what a cool guy."
