  • What a scam... I mean... I know magic isn't real... but he (or SOMEone) really messed up!!

    There was tons of build-up for this stunt...

    He hung upside down for something like 60hrs from a wire... (but I hear he was given bathroom breaks & right-side-up time hourly too)... and then he was supposed to dive from like 5 stories up to a platform below.

    I switched to that channel with about 15min left of the "special" to go. They showed clips of David doing magic on the streets and HE'S GOOD at that! Anyways...

    He's pulled up from hanging upside-down... he's standing on the arm of a crane getting ready to "jump". He JUMPS... but about 3/4 way down is stopped by a cable attached to his back & just hangs there for a while... then he's pulled up into the air.

    Well... I COULDA DONE THAT?!?!
    (The announcer was like "How did he DO that... he just FLEW up into the atmosphere?" Um, a cable... that's how... we all saw it!)

    I was looking on YouTube and I guess what was SUPPOSED to happen was he was going to jump... then the lights were going to go off while he was pulled up up and away by the cable (which I guess was attached to large black balloons). And then they'd turn the lights on & he'd be gone. BUT IT DIDN'T HAPPEN that way... someone really dropped the ball & it make David look pretty silly as he was hanging there?!?!

    So... there went 15min of MY life!!

  • Oh, wouldve loved to see the mess-up, but I didnt watch. I heard them talking about this yesterday on the radio that he had to take some breaks every hour, or something like that. I didnt even hear he was having a special til yesterday.

    He jumps when the video is at 2min...
    you have to listen at the end, at one point the announcer says "... he's dissapeared..." and some woman in the crowd says "He didn't dissapear, he's over there!"
