I wouldn't define what he did as failure by any stretch. Even the guy who holds the world record -- 8:58 -- couldn't do it again. But I had the same thought as you about legitimizing the previous stunts. Get it right every single time and it's not a stunt, it's a trick.Originally posted by Forgetful Freddy:
I'm actually glad he failed because I think it legitimizes his previous stunts.
They should have invited everyone watching to begin holding their breath when he started to. 7:08 is an awfully long time.
I am really interested in hearing the story how all those (reportedly) taped trick segments ended up somewhere other than in the two-hour special. Makes me wonder if there's a new DVD on the horizon.
