Calen Morelli has gotten a huge amount of attention for his recent video showing him allegedly approaching a police officer offering to sell him marijuana, only to have the evidence disappear. He stopped by to chat with the crew at TMZ Live Monday and admitted that the video is not exactly what it seems to be after all.

So, if you pepper your audience with actors are they stooges even if they are only there to present pre-determined responses and not actually affect the effect? Did anyone expect TMZ Live to be the forum for discussing magic ethics and presentation?
