I'm about to do a street performance as an advertisement for my iPhone mentalism app Psypic (because my previous ad needs major improvement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmauTfjPorQ).

I'm looking for do's and don't's or other tips, such as if I need people to sign a waiver or anything else for me to show their image on YouTube.

For your subjects use good-looking young women in scanty/tight clothing who can scream with delight on cue.

Use 2 cameras, if possible. Allows for editing without losing continuity, or making it look choppy, like you're hiding something.

Check with your lawyer, but I am quite sure that you will need what is commonly referred to as a "model release" from anyone whose image appears in a photo, film or video that will be "published" and I believe that putting it on a YouTube video constitutes "publication." I'm sure that one of the lawyers on the Café will correct me if I'm wrong.

Get yourself a shooting script, model release form and if possible yeah, do a 2 camera shoot. Choose your spectators beforehand and brief them on how you are going to shoot it and get them to sign the release beforehand. When we filmed a special for cable 2 people wandered off while we set up another shot and we had to film a whole segment again as we couldn't use them.

Find a very charasmatic performer that viewers will connect with. If you know someone who can do that whether if its you or not have them do it. Theres a reason the big companies use people like Wayne Houchin to perform others effects.
practice practice perform.
