The Incredibly Modest Criss Angel

"There are a lot of moments that I am very honored to have had: to be the most-watched magician in Internet history with 300 million views, is really crazy. My one walk on water clip has been viewed more times than the following magicians' best-viewed clips combined: David Blaine, Doug Henning, Siegfried and Roy, David Copperfield, Penn and Teller and Houdini. The fact that it has been viewed more times than all of those guys together is pretty mind-blowing," he said. "My International Magicians Society Hall of Fame induction was crazy!"

Crazy, indeed!

That's beat.

(Was he always like that? It just seems weird that so many magicians I respect were helping this guy at one time--perhaps he changed after he got famous?)

He also now holds the unofficial world record for the Number of Times Anyone Has Said the Word "venue" while being Quoted in a Puff Piece in the very prestigious Less Than Ten Lines or One Hundred Words subcategory.

And I'm sure he'll be contacting the gurus at Guinness to make it official if he reads this.

Who knew the second guy's song would lyricize what folks feel about the first guy? (And that "I'm looking at you through a keyhole" haircut doesn't help lessen one's flight urge.)
