This reminds me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYxu_MQSTTY
Hell yeah, the first videos in the series were great. Then came that Azouza guy and ruined it.
This guy has to be the biggest attention whore out there. He seems to just put himself in uncomfortable situations that most people would only do for a nice wad of cash.
I'm sure he gets a nice wad of cash for all of it. I heard him say his next stunt was going to be breaking the record for staying awake the longest. I think the record is like 11 or 12 days. Thats insane.
For someone 'in the business' this is a tremendous yawn.
I met him once in Lisbon at a convention and found it hard to keep my eyes open, although he was with a stunning Latina-looking woman that kept me very wide-awake. I know it's his style but his personality must surely have been removed by lobotomy.
Over on my magic forum, the guys are still saying these stunts would make the great Harry Houdini proud and I guess that's true as these stunts are in keeping with Houdini's style, albeit that Houdini had a much more effervescent personality. But for me, his stunts are boring. Here's what one guy had to say and I totally agree:
"...Basically, he does the "same trick" over and over again, year after year.
I will lie down and do nothing.
I will stand in a make pretend ice cube and do nothing.
I will stand on a tower and do nothing.
I will sit in a glass box and do nothing.
Now, I will hang upside down and do nothing.
Interestingly, New York City is probably the only city in the country that it will work and people will show up to watch. New Yorkers are perplexed at the mere concept that someone could do nothing for so many hours.
If he tried his stunts in other cities, he'd be ignored".
In actual fact, that's not true as Londoners came out it droves when Blaine was suspended in a box over the River Thames...but they only came to mock.
We British...What are we like?
I hope he gets hit by a bird..
Doubt he will do it.. The last stunt I seen him attempt was about holding his breathe for a long period of time, didn't finish it..
I agree it's really not magic, he just likes to test the limits of the human body. I've heard him say that many times.
He did end up breaking the breathe holding record underwater. He failed the first time he tried, but he ended up breaking it on Oprah of all places, LOL.
Fake Azz David Blaine Yall Want To See Real Magic Go To Africa And When You Come Back it Will Make u Flickoff David Blaine And All Those Other Impastors lol
Give me Criss Angel over David Blaine any day.
I know the majority of posters here are male, but
I just have to put in my 2 cents. lol
Lol damn at that, his/her eyes must of been abused!
No sleep after 24 hours makes me got mad weird, never mind 12 days.
Lol is that really the record?
I stayed awake for 2 weeks on a bet with my buddys about 2 years ago. Should do that shit again, hell itd be easy now days. Im up 3-4 days at a time sometimes anyways.
'...And your opinion on Hans Klok?
Not his magic, I have defended his superb performances more times than I have drawn breath but as the U.S. believes it is the world leader of magic, (It is not)...and Hans is European, The Netherlands, I believe he gets a raw deal)... As a girl/woman's opinion of a man...and forget he is rumoured to be Gay. Criss Angel is a pretty-boy in a Rock Star kind of way. So what of Hans, or do you not like blonde California-types?
That is really really baddd for your health buddy
But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
thats kuz hes not a magician and cant do any real magic.
*I am BATMAN!
I liked DB as a magician, but he crossed the line. He doesn't get my attention these days.
I don't know.............he looks like he is trying to hard to look good.
Not my type I guess. I like 'em tall and dark.
Noone of them match up to Derren Brown. And he honestly says that his "tricks" are no magic, but combination of showmanship, psychology and stuff like that. He is an atheist, too. Google him on youtube and you will be amazed.
ima see if i have some free time today to go down to central park and see this attention whore.
Magician David Blaine plans to take the world's longest dump. When contacted for comment, Mr. Blaine's publicist stated that he's been in training for months eating a steady diet of refried beans, hog's feet, top sirloin, roughage and metamucil. Film at 11...
