Many of you know I'm a TEDster. Getting invited to attend TED was very exciting and when I had the chance to speak at TEDU in 2007, that was a tremendous honor. I remember after giving my 12-minute talk someone asked if I was nervous that Jeff Bezos, Peter Gabriel, and Matt Groening were in my audience. I replied, "Cameron Diaz was sitting in the middle of the front row. I didn't even know anybody else was even IN the audience!"

Anyway, enough name-dropping. Let's have a little fun before our extended weekend. has hundreds of awesome videos. You should check them out. But here's one five-minute talk by illusionist Marco Tempest that will completely blow you away.
