Get your facts straight, he said 'Criss uses assistants', NOT STOOGES. The assistants are used as a magician would on stage or even on the street.


Assistants? But arent the people holding up the towels for some of his vanishes assistants?

I know how that works, I have done it once before. And I will say this much, yes, it is possible to do it without editing if and only if you have a pile of money like angel, but it is a edited of a lot easier to use a little camera trickery to get it done. I am thinking the one on his mindfreak special, the special not the series, was not camera trickery, but I think the one on mindfreak the series was probably camera trickery. I can tell the difference since I have done it before. And the camera trick way can be done without cuts.

why the edited would he do it once without then with? you dont make any sense...i know how he does it there is no camera tricks involved...seriously..how would you like it if you spent all your time coming up with material you could use that didnt involve camera tricks, and every1 said "camera trick that sucked"

It's funny, I'm almost 20. However I do not have a lot to learn. In fact I probably know a lot more than most of the people here. That being said however, most of the people here are like 10-15 years old and know not very much of magic. You I am sure are a very good magician and I am not trying to take anything away from you. I was merely trying to be funny. Although you took it seriously, sarcasm is hard to write out. My thing was that it just seems juvenile to cop out like that and say "I knew someone who was there" because it just seems like something I would have pulled out in grade 9.
Good call on the early 20's though. I thought that was hilarious.

oh I have to clarify, I did actually meet Ghandi. Although it wasn't the real Ghandi, I think he is dead. It was just some regular dude that I met over the summer where I was working. Ghandi was just his first name.
The other stuff was obviously a lie.

Well Bucky I am correct about your age but I think your more mature then I thought --that is to your credit, but seriously I have seen Criss Angel more then once and know a few who have seen him as well you don't have to be this, as known has to believe anything anyone says.

Yea, I was confused there at the end, what I meant to say was...

I have seen Criss Angel more then once and know a few people who have seen him as well, you don't have to believe this, as no-one has to believe anything anyone says especially online.

I think my main point though was that even if you don't believe me the un-edited version of the effect is saying the same thing I am saying, I am not really adding any more to it by claiming my friend told me about it. It was my recollecting what I heard.

I'm sorry, but if that's not plain obvious camera edits... I'm an idiot.

I enjoy his show and a lot of his illusions I can't discredit, but that video is just plain awful.

My only thing is that if he constantly uses stooges and whatnot, why hasn't anyone of those people come out to of said it. He does it a lot, you'd think at least ONE of them would say "yeah he set me up". I don't get it.

I didnt see a camera trick, maybe a setup with some stooges, but no camera edits.

T.H.E.M. also did this same effect. They did it at a club, with only the cover of a trench coat. It's a possible effect.

Well I guess you got me... but that's very unprofessional to have the camera obviously cut/flicker at cruical moments in the video.

Of course he is using a camera edit (or an awful lot of stooges). Think about it... he can't ACTUALLY teleport so he is getting out form underneath the can and running to the top of the overhang.

Only 2 possibilities are out there:

If he is REALLY under the can when they all put their hands on it then he obviously sneaks out the back of it and people see him doing so and he has used stooges.

If he never went under the can then the video is lying and is edited when they skip away to just show it fitting over his odd moving legs. In which case he has lied to the audience and everyone sees him not going in and are still being paid to act like they acted. MAYBE he has hidden behind a stooge (and placed gimmicked legs under the can) and when they all push down on the can, he sneaks inside and runs to the overhang.

No matter how you cut it, there are either cuts or stooges... or both.

People here don't REALLY think he can teleport, do they?

Who the heck do you think you are? Do you know me? Do you know exactly how much I know about magic? I'm not trying to say I know a lot, but honestly, you don't know me. I'm sure you know a lot, because you must if you make a claim like that. I'm not trying to knock you at all but you don't know me, you don't know the extent of my knowledge of magic so you cannot just come out and make a claim like that. You have a lot to learn about proving things true.
