In magical mentalist show, a message for fincrime compliance professionals: anyone can be fooled

In his shows, he seems to allow everyone to pick random letters, numbers, names, articles of clothes, regions, famous actors, but somehow guesses a future event, such as Jack Black, flying to Mexico to have chicken-fried rice – by already having a picture of the image drawn and pulled from a closed envelope, with a video predicting as well.
