I can't agree there. I think the entire stunt was masterfully done. It captured the attention of a large part of the British population and looked great.
You mean Derren didn't actually predict the lottery? And David Copperfield wasn't really cut in half by that laser? Aw gee, Mom, say it ain't so!
Bravo to the Objective Productions team.
I couldn't agree more Mr Field.
I thought that the idea of the stunt on Weds to create the water cooler chatter to publicise the Friday new series was genius.
The best marketing of a magic show on UK telly I've ever seen. The column inches it generated was immense.
I thoroughly enjoyed the theatre and excitement of the hour show. I then watched Blaine after and it seemed so dull in comparison. One guy walking up to hillbillies and freaking them out with shop bought tricks and patter "hey, look". The other managing to capture seemingly the whole country's interest.
Once again Messrs Brown and Nyman pull off a cracker!
