Window Card Trick

Ever since I saw this done by David Blaine, I've been flummoxed. The magician asks someone to pick a card, then throws the deck at a nearby window. All the cards fall to the ground, except for the picked card, which is stuck to the inside of the window. How do you do this trick? Well, like everything else, it's on the Internet. And like all magic tricks, the explanation is ridiculously simple.

Man that trick was wild. I saw it on one of his specials a while ago and it was pretty impressive.
But now that I think about it, there was a couple sitting in front of the window of the cafe looking incredulously at the card on the window. Simple yet effective.
The trouble with TV magicians is everyone has to be in on the trick to film it.
The cameraman has to be told not to point the camera at the helpers by the window. The director has to know when to move the camera at the fake card. Etc., etc.,
Kind of silly if you ask me.
