Most pickpockets rely on the element of surprise. They swoop their fast fingers and nefarious intentions into jackets and purses and slide them back out, ideally without the victim realizing a misdemeanor level crime/ dick move even occurred. Apollo Robbins isn’t most pickpockets, however. He’s like the Larry Bird of the street hustle. He prefers to tell his victims what’s coming, and over the past few decades, he’s turned that shit-talking, greasy fingers artistry into a lucrative business which he stopped by Today last week to demonstrate.

Go ahead and check out the video below of Apollo squaring off against hapless victims Ryan Seacrest, Willie Geist and Matt Lauer below…

I like how much flair this guy has. It’s one thing to take someone’s watch. It’s quite another to do it and dangle the treasure over the poor guy’s head like he’s an incompetent bozo. Poor Willie. He somehow never saw it coming, despite the fact that Robbins was there with the express purpose of pilfering his personal possessions.

I have no idea how Robbins was able to figure out he was this good at stealing things, but he deserves a massive round of applause for turning those thieving skills into a lucrative legal business. He makes appearances all over the world and does special jobs for some of the biggest companies in the world. So, if you’re at a corporate retreat and see the dude’s face, keep your hands in your pockets for the duration of the event.
