What just happened?

If you want to make it big in the entertainment industry, The Ellen DeGeneres Show is a good place to start. The U.S. talk show averages over four million viewers for every episode and yesterday the audience was introduced to nine-year-old Irish boy Aidan McCann.

Aidan's hobby is performing magic tricks which he has been doing for the past four years. Which begs the question, what were you doing when you were five? Let's move on.

After introducing himself, Aidan got down to business by performing a mind-boggling stunt involving a DVD. If you're surprised that a nine-year-old even knows what a DVD is, just wait until you watch him perform the trick which pretty much blew Ellen's mind and will blow yours as well.

He followed this up with an even more amazing card trick involving a notebook which would even leave the eggheads animators at Pixar scratching their heads.

The full clip can be viewed in the video below and you might need to watch it more than once.
