To me, there is no way that video was real, it was staged, for quite a few reasons. The card sticks out like a sore thumb in the stack like it was placed there. It's dinged too and the others aren't. The way they were acting and filming it didn't seem genuine at all.

I agree. I hope I'm wrong and pulls le this can still happen but the whole set up doesn't make sense. He opens "10,000" cards and then decided to film on the pack that holds it.
I've done magic shows for years and am pretty good at slight of hand detection. He "cuts" the pack with scissors but you can't actually se he cutting the plastic. Also he reads off a bunch of names as he goes through the pack then as it drags on he starts going faster and skipping names as if he is trying to get to something.
Like mentioned the corner I'd dinged on the one card while he is so carful with the rest.
Like I said I hope I'm wrong but seems a bit fishy to me.
Just my take on it.

No offense to the skeptics but this video was most likely edited down to show only the portion that would be of interest. He could have opened those packs you're talking about not seeing. But why would you want to sit through that?

Count me as one of the skeptics too, but this looks completely faked. He could have edited down the video, but they filmed that amount of lead in/setup for every pack?? Plus all the signs already pointed out. Would be nice if it was real, but seems doubtful.
