I've just starting catching his show "Mindfreak" on A & E. Totally awesome magic tricks. Most go beyond jaw-dropping.


www.aetv.com...

Realizing there is a "trick" to them (or he's in league with otherworldly forces), how in the F@#$ does he do the levitation?

Not to mention disappearing from one spot right in front of everyone, and reappearing on a balcony above?

Or how about splitting someone in half on a park bench, and the two halves keep moving independently?

If I were rich, I'd offer to put his favorite charity in my will if he'd reveal the secrets to me on my death bed.

The levitation trick is explained by criss himself on youtube.
It is just a modified pair of jeans. Im not quite sure of the specifics but its a very clever illusion

There was a time when I really enjoyed watching him because I was wowed by his talent. Then I discovered he's using tv editing to achieve most of the impossible looking illusions. So he is a fraud.

Then he just started to bother me with his persona...he reminds me of the metrosexual episode on southpark. I just cant stand to look at the guy anymore.

I've been trying to dig up some info on this, too.

The levitations particularly seem impossible without CGI or something.

Fascinating video. I'm not saying you or it are wrong, but I've seen quite a bit of speculation, and a lot of it is not very convincing.

You should become a fan of Derren Brown instead, search his name on youtube and you'll find the most mind boggeling things.

He doesn't cheat, I can vouch for that.

Edit: Cheat as in any of that stuff shown above.. In the clip.
