Criss Angel Escapes from Cement Box
And you thought landing Cameron Diaz was impressive...
On Monday, Criss Angel appeared to escape from a cement box suspended above Times Square in New York after it crashed to the ground without anyone seeing him emerge.
Hundreds gathered to watch his escape, as a big screen showed Angel inside the box, kicking at the walls and dejectedly holding his head in his hands. When a countdown clock hit zero, the box was sent plunging to the ground. As organizers called for paramedics and fans went quiet, Angel appeared atop the screen's nearby scaffolding, waving to the crowd and with his hand across his heart.
Eat your heart out, David Blaine!
While much of the audience cheered, several people were heard asking: "Was he actually in the box?"
"Well, I was in it when I fell â" that's the truth," Angel told Reuters, adding that people should be asking how he got from the fallen box to the scaffolding.
The stunt was meant to draw attention to the third season of his show Mindfreak, which premiered last night on A&E.
