  • When I saw what our next guest could do with an iPad, I was blown away.

  • All the way from Germany, please welcome magician Simon Pierro.

  • I saw something that was on ellentube, I think, but I have not seen what you're doing today.

  • I'm going to be surprised.

  • - Thanks for having me. - Okay, thanks for being here.

  • - So you might be surprised about a couple of things that I found out with the iPad.

  • I don't know if it ever happened to you, but if you go through like this, this might happen.

  • [audience exclaims]

  • If it does so, don't worry.

  • It's not a software problem or anything.

  • This is just more space for your own creativity.

  • - Okay.

  • - So can you see that string?

  • - Yes. - Here?

  • Thanks to the string, I stop it, and I do have access to a whole new set of new apps, all a bit better than the old one (ones).

  • So thanks to this string, I can actually show you my last 2,000 pictures from my vacation.

  • [laughter] Don't worry.

  • I won't show you all of them, Ellen.

  • I'll just show you the overview, 'cause that way, I can easily print them.

  • [audience exclaims]

  • Which is fantastic.

  • My parents, they do not have an iPad, so I just put it on a postcard and send it back all the way to Germany.

  • - Uh-huh. [laughter]

  • - But before I do so, I always make a copy.

  • Otherwise, the data might get lost.

  • I know this app doesn't make any sense, but it's fun, and I think FaceTime is as well.

  • So let me call a friend of mine.

  • I hope he's ready.

  • If you are too. That is you.

  • - Yes. - That's the audience.

  • - Uh-huh. - And--hi, Christoph.

  • - Hi, Simon. - Can you hear me?

  • - Yes, I can hear you.

  • - Okay. Are you ready? - I'm ready.

  • - Please do your best. I'm at "Ellen."

  • [laughter] Okay.

  • - Here's the straw. - Yes.

  • - Okay like that? - Perfect.

  • So thanks to this straw here, I can easily--

  • - Worked well? - Worked well.

  • Thank you. Yes.

  • Ellen, thanks to this straw, I can share not only music, videos, but also Coke.

  • [slurping]

  • It's excellent.

  • But I can also give something back.

  • He doesn't know about that.

  • Some coconut milk from California.

  • - [speaking indistinctly] - One second, please.

  • And here we go. Milk is coming.

  • [laughter]

  • Okay, as you can see--

  • it's still a prototype, but it worked.

  • Please give a hand to Christoph. - Wow.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • - Ellen, this iPad is also a very good hiding place, a place to hide stuff.

  • For example, for today, I have ..

  • Let me find it ...

  • It's well secured over here.

  • On the third page, I'm hiding, for today, an Ellen pen.

  • So here we go, because I'm gonna need that in a second.

  • - Uh...

  • - Please can you hold that?

  • - [clears throat]

  • [laughter]

  • - And as Neil Patrick Harris just reminded us that you are the "queen of selfies," I wanted to create an app just for you, and that's what I did.

  • So what I do now, I go into the audience.

  • I will come back in a second. - Okay.

  • - So let me-- what a beautiful audience.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • So ...

  • Let's see for--

  • Hello there. Hi, hi, hi.

  • So what about these two beautiful ladies?

  • Would you join me in a selfie?

  • -Sure. - So please come a bit closer.

  • We turn the camera around, and we are ready to...

  • And smile.

  • I'll do some.

  • Okay, got it.

  • Thank you very much.

  • And now...

  • I can show you how your app will work.

  • This is the "Ellen Selfie."

  • I just take one of the last pictures--

  • One of the few pictures I made.

  • And here it is.

  • This is how the app looks like.

  • This is how my grandmother's picture frame looks like.

  • And now I need your help on the count of three.

  • One, two, three.

  • And there it is.

  • And this is not another iPad.

  • This is a real, live photo...

  • [audience exclaims] - What!?

  • I'll sign it for you.

  • Unbelievable.

  • Go to our website to find out more about Simon, if you have an amazing magic act you want me to see, please post it on ellentube, we'll be right back, wow!
