Yeah, I saw the same thing happen with this one guy. Yeah, I was watching spiderman 2 the other day and he did it just like criss angel, omg! Just kidding, yes randwill it is amazing. That little, incompetent minds can be manipulated so easily into believing that people can defy the laws of physics at will, thats just incredible. Now, I knew that Criss would fool some laymen at home watching or something, but I didn't know he would actually fool the young minds of magicians on here! I most congratulate Criss on that and must tell him that he has a good power of manipulating young minds. Unless God intervened, which he wouldn't for something like that, there is no way he can do that kinda stuff, not possible. And the_peripheral, I hope your kidding about Mother Mary thing and being all god like or something, cause you're really making me want to smack you through the screen, now that would be a trick. Just stop saying that crap and I'll be fine, thanks.



noone really believes he can walk up the building, its an illusion, just like noone really believes copperfield can fly.

well, i didnt read back that far, these forums move to fast. but if anyone actually believes criss angel can do the things he does,(remember he is a magician), then their parents didnt raise them right or they have strict christian beliefs, where they think anyone who walks across the street without the use of crosswalks is the devil.... :twisted:

ok, so superman, spider man, and batman had a 3-way?


In short, yes. Well, actually, it was a 4-way...those 3 with Mother Mary makes 4.

Anyone notice that when he did the short walk he was carrying an umbrella... it wasn't raining outside. It's clearly a gimmick. And i'm sure the stunt was done with wires. We use ITR... what's to prevent him from using something similar. The people are HUNDREDS of feet away.

I can't be the only one who noticed that while he's walking up the side of the building, his hair doesn't follow gravity and hang toward the ground. It's obviously nothing more than camera work...or a lot of gel/hairspray! :lol:

It's an illusion people. Criss Angel is extremely rich. He has the money and means to build huge illusions, that we simply can't. He can get gimmicks, that we have no idea about. This was not a camera trick, it was an illusion, just like David Copperfield flying, or walking through the Great Wall of China is an illusion. There's no reason for hired actors or camera tricks, because it's nothing more then an illusion, just like you would see during a stage performance.

I would think that the force of gravity would cause his back to arch at least a little bit, don't you? And as soon as he did, his chains, etc would no longer "rest" on his chest...they would fall back behind his head as he is going up.

thats why he talked about how he has to work out a lot etc so he can do the things he does...if he didnt work out and did the building walk yeah he would be bending back but he's strong enough to keep his back straight, make sense? its called muscle...he does like 1000 to 1200 sit ups,crunches stomach excersises a day, im pretty sure he has the strength do be able to keep himself straight like that, just like the people that can hold a pole and stick out horizontal from it, its amazing what muscle can do

True, the human body can be very impressive.

"Bolo Yeung, Lee's (Bruce Lee) co-star in Enter the Dragon, recalls seeing his friend perform this exercise with just his shoulder blades resting on the end of the bench, and with his legs and torso suspended horizontally off of it. "He was able to keep himself perfectly horizontal in midair!" Yeung notes. "

"Bruce Lee's striking speed from 2 feet away was five hundredths of a second."

"Bruce did one-hand push ups using only 2 fingers."

"Bruce was able to break a 150lb bag with a sidekick." (Lee's average weight was about 125 pounds.)

"Bruce was able to hold a 125-pound barbell at arms length in front of him (with elbows locked) for several seconds" (Again Lee's weight was about 125 pounds)

I used Lee as an example because he one of my inspirations in martial arts and he perfectly shows what the human body is capable of.

Another great example is Blaine, him and his endurance stunts, but you have all heard about them a million times probably, so I won't bore you with it.


About Angel's Building Walk effect, I know it can't be done anytime and I know it can't be done on the streets. No matter what his body can do.

Actually, I'm not sure if he can really do that. I forgot how long he did it, but it's impossible to do it for too long. Not even Bruce Lee could have done it for too long, and he was pound for pound probably one of the strongest men alive at his time. Angel, probably not, many people have his body.
