Video evidence shows that Criss Angel is not actually a wizard: douchebag status remains intact

July 31, 2008

Criss Angel supposedly performed his most dangerous stunt yet.  Here’s how a journalist in the L.A. Times described the performance.

Rockstar magician and illusionist Criss Angel variously calls the event his “most challenging escapeCriss_angel_2 ever” and “the most dangerous thing I have attempted in my career” -– a stunt in which he’ll flee a building set for destruction and rigged with hundreds of pounds of explosives before 4,500 tons of concrete come barreling down on top of him.

Handcuffed to a seventh-floor balcony, the Sin City sensation will have just three minutes and 30 seconds to get through a series of locked doors and climb three flights of stairs to the roof. His salvation: a helicopter hovering above with a dangling 30-foot ladder. The event will be broadcast live at 7 tonight on “Mindfreak,” Angel’s popular A&E show.

The Tampa Bay Fox affiliate sent its newscopter to cover the event.  They were a bit skeptical.  Here’s their take with video and analysis of the stunt.

Take out a line and order fries with this.
