BMW did that in an advertisement.

Mythbusters replicated the "pull" with some interesting results (episode Tablecloth Chaos), but I'm only seeing previews of it on YouTube.
It looks like you can buy it on Amazon.

Hmmm, I decided to try pulling a sheet out of the middle of my ream of paper, with a few things piled on top of it.  One quick jerk.  And, I did reasonably well...  Perhaps one needs to have a little extra weight on top of the pile.  Or, maybe it is just the jerk.  It may be easier to grab a piece from the middle of the pile than the top of the stack.
