What's Hot on SlashControl: Criss Angel Mindfreak - Bike Jump Vanish

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 29th 2009 9:03AM
I'm the perfect Criss Angel Mindfreak viewer, because I have no idea how he does all those stunts and tricks. I'd like to, though!

And while Criss seems just plain freaky, he's always the perfect gentleman when dealing with people. Except for times when he does something completely freaky and you'd think the people involved would have a heart attack.

In one episode, I watched a guy who seemed like he was actually having his head cut off by a guillotine. It seemed so real, because Criss was running around telling people to call 911 and whatnot, and the guy's wife was nearly having a stroke. Unless they were in on it, that was way too cruel a trick to play on anyone.

In this clip from our sister site SlashControl, Criss trains with champion aerialist and world record jump holder Trigger Gunn to jump a 60-foot long, 20-foot high ramp at 50 mph. Apparently, Criss is a longtime fan of motorcycle jump legend Evel Knieval.

Trigger made the jump when he landed they made the switch behind the trees and trailer . Also they moved the crowd out and did some editing to make it look like he vanished . I was there

Whenever a magician dons a mask, cloak and hood or. .yes, motorcycle helmet. . it's time to watch for the moment said magician is swapped out for a double. Angel's bike doesn't remain in view prior to hitting the ramp and I very much doubt he's the one making the crucial jump.
