Did you know Gearbox Software founder, president and CEO Randy Pitchford started out as a professional magician in Hollywood? He unleashed his magical powers at the Gearbox panel at PAX East earlier today, and the world trembled beneath his might.
Like any good Hollywood magician, Pitchford stole this trick from a fellow magician — Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller fame. Unlike any good Hollywood magician, Randy admits it.
If you watch very closely, you can see a classic bit of misdirection, as well as the ads that kept popping up during the Twitch stream from the event, which I did not attend, or I would be wearing Pitchford’s jacket right now.
