Conman David Blaine caught out
Looks like I was right the other day, when I fingered David Blaine’s latest supposed “stunt” as nothing more than yet another of his cons dressed up as… well, I don’t know. He doesn’t do illusions, he doesn’t do magic, he just hoodwinks people.
His latest money-spinner was a claim that he would be hoisted by his heels over the Wollmann ice rink in New York on Monday, and that he would remain that way until Wednesday night.
I said it was rubbish, a rubbish idea, and a rubbish claim – don’t take my word for it, I can’t stand the guy, even looking at him is enough to irritate me, let alone his smug, condescending, arrogant and insulting approach to everyone.
See what his fans said on the BBC:
But some claimed they had been duped into believing Blaine would remain inverted for the entire 60 hours.
“I am totally unimpressed,” said one onlooker. “If his name hadn’t been David Blaine I would never have come.”
Blaine shrugged off criticism during the stunt, telling one interviewer that he was “not going to pee all over myself”.
No, leave that pleasure for the rest of us, you’ve been doing it to us for long enough, we deserve a chance to get out own back.
Ach, he’d probably video it, and sell it to a fetish site.
