Abracadabra! Make this speeding ticket ... disappear! That's pretty much how it went for Steven Brundage when he was pulled over for doing 42 in a 30. He wowed officers with his cool trick:

"The cheating happens when you toss it in the air like that," Brundage tells the officers.

"How did you do that?" the officer identified as Officer Brady asks.

"I got so good at cheating. ... One-handed, behind the back. When I catch it again, take a look. That's one second right there," Brundage says.

And he got off scott-free. Dang, we all need to learn a little magic. 

Brundage is based in New York and keeps active on his Facebook page, where it says he has been performing for about a decade. 

His website says he's an award-winning magician, and from the looks of it, he is actively booking clients. 

And he has worked his magic again — making it to national television. He asked ABC host Michael Strahan to pick a card. 

"Six of diamonds," Strahan says.

"I'm going to tear it right off the card ... get that corner to completely disappear from here, and it's going to go inside the Rubik's Cube. ... I'm going to take off a little piece. ... Is that the six of diamonds?" Brundage asks after pulling the card's corner out of the Rubik's Cube. 

"How did you do that?" anchor Amy Robach asks. 

We can't tell you how he does his magic ... and we know he won't. You’ve heard the saying: A true magician never tells his tricks.
