Magicians have been entertaining audiences for centuries but as we all know, there's no such thing as magic. Instead, magic tricks are simply illusions that play tricks on our brains which is exactly what takes place in the clip below.

As part of a promo for a National Geographic Channel show called Brain Games, illusionist Eric Leclerc claims to be able to read your mind. He flashes a deck of cards and asks you to pick a single card from the deck at random. Leclerc is then able to magically select the card you chose.

It's a pretty neat trick but not one of those that's uber hard to figure out. Let us know if you figured it out in the comments below!
