Joey does his magic

Joey Fatone says he can make it disappear.

He was talking about my business card. This is the noteworthy networking tool that features my caricature, Li’l Johnny Kats, colorfully inked across the front. During a dinner party the other night, Fatone snapped the card out of my hand and, in one swift movement, made it vanish.

Fatone performed this trick several times before I thought, “Hey, this might make a good YouTube clip!” So I recorded a few seconds of video on my iPhone.

Most famous for his years as a member of ’N Sync (which made the composure of millions of young women disappear), Fatone is currently a member of “Dancing With the Stars: Live in Las Vegas” at the Trop and also a recurring guest host of “The Price Is Right Live” at Bally’s.

Somewhere, he should work this talent into one of his stage performances. It’s pretty … trick.
