So Criss Angel is going to be in Florida to escape an exploding building on a helicopter on live television.
A co-worker came into work the other day, stating she had watched Criss Angel on his show Mind Freak and was just astounded. The late hour combined with sleep deprivation made the magic tricks seem all the more impressive to her, I think.
"Do you know anything about him?" she asked. "Did he sell his soul?"
"You know, did he sell his soul to the devil to be able to do all that stuff?"
In response, I sent her some YouTube clips. Just do a search for "Criss Angel" and "revealed" and there are thousands of videos of clips from his show that have been dissected and analyzed to figure out how he did it. Some people dip into parody, some admit they are only speculating, and some use professional tools to detect computer composite shots.
"Wow, now I feel silly," she said after she watched the clips.
So don't watch these clips if you don't want to become disillusioned.
After the jump, David Copperfield talks about how he deals with so many people on YouTube trying to explain his many acts.
