Whats your point? None of that explains what I said.
I didin't want to start a big discussion again, just give my opinion and add some facts that hadn't been mentioned yet. Thecooltonto, I didn't reply to your arguments, I replied to jverrone who asked the question and then to clarissa35f. If you have read my comment carefully, how can you not understand what my point is? My point is that it wouldn't make a sense to fake something where everybody knows he can do it. I never claimed that he never used camera edits- I am a Loyal, but I'm not stupid.
But in this case facts speak for him. He really holds this record, if you don't believe it but want to know, just get a Guinness Book and look it up. Criss also had another record for the longest body suspension, but that record was beaten by someone this year. In the metamorphosis, his record is less than a second, like it is shown in the video. And he will do it in his upcoming live show again, so why argue? He'll prove it again to all the doubters.
What you said about the movements, all we see is him suddenly standing on the box. That's the effect, but nobody knows what happens in the second he is invisible. That's what he brought to perfection during the years, not the visual performance.
I definitely don't like to argue with people who just don't like Criss Angel, but ignorance and a narrow-minded state make me angry- don't take that personally, I mean it generally. I already mentioned the fact that if he had no skill and would always use camera tricks, he wouldn't be that big. He wouldn't have won the Merlin Award 5 times. He wouldn't have the Guinness Book entry... and so on.
Oh, almost forgot something.
He did the same thing for the very first episode of Mindfreak when he was on fire and even admitted to cutting it to make it faster if I'm not mistaken.
Never heard of something like that. And I'm pretty sure I would if it was true, because there were so many people, and most of them will have watched it on tv later again. In this case, so many people would know it that it couldn't stay a secret for a long time. I mean it's one thing to use a hand full of stooges who will not say a word later, but it's impossible with such a big crowd where are people with cell phones and cameras all around. Also I can't believe Criss admitted anything, because to date he claims that he never used camera tricks... I know it's not true, but I understand his reasons for staying obstinate. But that's a different discussion.
