Watch your pockets, folks.

Moritz Mueller's sleight-of-hand skills are so good, he could probably walk off with Rudolph's red nose before Santa could even check the naughty-or-nice list once.

The 15-year-old German magician, who rose to prominence last year following a mind-melting YouTube routine with silver dollars and an appearance on "Ellen," is back, this time with yet more sleight-of-hand tricks.

Next thing you know, he'll be hoodwinking corgis.

While the above clip dates to February, it's only now gaining traction, thanks to promotion by Digg.
