One could easily do a shot be shot remake of that and insert Blaine into most of those clips as he did a good number of those exact pieces before angel.

Here is my million dollar cross angel challenge.

My committee will pick 5 mindfreak stunts. If criss can replicate any three of them live, appearing exactly as they did on tv, under the same performance conditions, using only untrained spectators as provided by the committee, then he will win a million dollars and a promise from the community not to be ridiculed again.

If he fails, then he must admit to being a fraud, even for a magician, and go away forever.

I'm in for 2k. Anyone else?

A case of pot calling kettle black in my honest opinion. In fact this type of TV magic shouldn't be classed as Magic at all as by Magics defining principle it is the creation of "mystery".

As 99.9% of the spectators supposedly mystyfied are in truth payed stooges the best classification I can come up with is "performance art" or "acting" but not Magic.

And now, the video of Criss challenging Dynamo has been pulled "Because of a copyright claim from a ;third party' " Hmmm

As I said already to my friends on Facebook who have this vid posted .

Dynamo and Criss angel should quit pretending to do magic and take a break to read both The Principles of Magic by Richard Osterlind and Our magic by maskelyne and Devant, it would make them both more critical of what they they have done and what they are currently doing though I'm guessing they don't care about the end result as much as they care about the bank balance.

I received a new link to the original video that Criss shared and have updated the post for those of you that missed it before YouTube took it down.

So, logically, if Chriss weighs the same as a duck...he's made of wood.
And therefor...???
