Oz Pearlman, a mentalist who finished in third during the 10th season of "America's Got Talent," recently showed up to a New York Jets preseason meeting and blew quarterback Aaron Rodgers' mind with a trick.
Appearing on an episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks," which features the Jets this season, Pearlman, 41, is seen asking Rodgers to oblige with helping him perform a trick.
It starts with Pearlman asking Rodgers to hold up some cards, look through them and think of whichever one he sees.
After scanning the deck, Rodgers puts the cards in his hands, thinks of his selection, and Pearlman correctly picks the card — the three of diamonds.
Then, Pearlman looks to Marquand Manuel, the Jets' safeties coach, and asks him what he was thinking of. Manuel responds with "a goldfish." Pearlman then tells Rodgers to look at what's in his hands — and it turns out he's holding what looks to be plastic goldfish in a plastic container. It absolutely blew the minds of everyone watching.
The full clip can be seen below.

After they were all amazed, someone in the crowd said, "Hold on. What if you would have picked a giraffe, though?"
What a hilarious line.
Moments like these help teams come together, especially with many new faces including Rodgers and newly signed running back Dalvin Cook.
The next episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks" premieres Wednesday night, Aug. 16. The Jets' next preseason game will be Saturday, Aug. 19, at 7:30 p.m. ET against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home.
