I've noticed he likes to reveal a lot of tricks lately. In a past season, he even revealed the wall walk. In the past few episodes in the latest season, he revealed like 10 tricks off of his master mindfreek dvds and it seems he's trying hard to sell them. I will never buy them because I can keep watching the show, waiting for him to eventually reveal all of them. :lol:

He doesn't care about revealing the wall walk, he's seriously revealed A LOT of mindreeks.

And I always thought it was a good idea to not reveal any magic illusions, unless you sell one of them to a magic distributor. Yet another reason why I've lost all respect for Angel and what he stands for in the Magic Community.

I don't mind a magician giving up his own tricks. It just means he knows he's good enough to keep developing newer, better tricks.

And yet people continue to b***h when a magician feels generous and doesn't package and sell single tricks on $20-30 DVDs. Penn talks about this situation best on one of his radio broadcasts. His view was it doesn't matter if people know how you do your trick (that's why he reveals so many of his own), but that the calibur of your showmanship will STILL stump them if you performed it 20 minutes later. Case in point? Criss Angel revealed his elevator trsonport trick on Penn's radio show BEFORE that season aired, and even knowin how he did it, it still looked great.

Umm this video only exposes Criss for the hack he truly is, no REAL exposure.

I wasn't talking about the video, I was responding to the posts above me.

So I was I actually. I did not see yours until then. But also for those thinking this is "legitimate" exposure, well it is but only limited to Angel. But it is a different kind of exposure, it exposes the hack he is as I said.
