Hello everyone. How's it going?

I am kinda new here, and I wanted to make a quick comment about one of Criss Angel's recent stunts... which has me really "scrathing my head".

The thing that I simply cannot figure out, is how Criss was able to do the "Vanish" in Sunset Park.

Yeah, I was looking for all kinds of camera tricks during the video ( or mirrors, or "whatever" gimmicks could be used... but, I wasn't able to see anything at all.) And, it seems to be one continuous shot.... WOW, that is really an awesome vanish. It looks extremely convincing, although I know that there's gotta be some kinda "Illusion" involved.

What'd ya' think about it?????? :?

Well, ya' know.....I was just kinda wondering... (whether he has hired actors or not) how in the world he was able to do such a "convincing" Vanish.

Sure looks cool to me. :)

When a magician vanishes (and it's not a video effect) he can only go in one of six directions. Up, down, left, right, foward or backward. When you eliminate the directions you can see, you are left with the answer.

God wouldn't need a blanket to hide behind while he "disappeared".

lol, god is already invisible, he doesnt need to vanish, anyway i agree with randwill, theres only 2 places he can go with this vanish, think of which one is the probable way, and that will be your answer. also criss angel does a card trick where he caught the card while riding his motorcycle, and just because he doesnt do card tricks, that doesnt make him any less than david blaine. david blaine doesnt do vanishes, so he must suck and criss angel "ROX".

Yes, the illusion is really great.... and he can only go a certain number of directions... you're right.

The only thing is, I don't see how he's able to "slip away" without being seen....

Unless he really "Vanished" LOL :lol:

Check the video clip, and tell me what you think. :wink:

Really, it's gotta be the most (or maybe one of the most) "realistic-looking" vanish you've ever seen.

Yes, that is a very good point, Magikrn....

and.... maybe it's better that we don't know for sure how he did it. :D
