Maybe I'm slow, but how is he supposed to take a bunch of kids shopping if he's suspended and shackled up in the air??
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

If he completes the stunt his fee is the ability to give the 100 kids the shopping spree.

Best,

Say what you will about his presentation ability or his recent reliance on "stunts," this is still a cool thing to do!

Go David!

Ok That clarifies it. The way it was worded in the commercial was rather nebulous, at best.

He has to be in the store by opening on Friday.
Actually, they get the shopping spree even if he fails.
But it looks really good this way.

Well here is a video I quickly threw together of what was going on today on 46th Street.

David seems to be still working the kinks out of this contraption. No apparent restraints as such yet and he seems to be having a great time.

You will need to let it load a bit (14 meg) and press play on the QuickTime bar to begin the video.

Eddie,

That video is great. Did you film this????? The camera work is very smooth. The jolson music ( younger Café members... look that one up...LOL ) is an excellent choice. I was going to say that this stunt reminds me of the old time NY events and the choice of music fit that thought exactly.

Please keep us posted and thanks for being our own private Café Network Reporter...LOL

Best,

Tim

Thanks Tim,
After I got your PM to remind me, I bundled up my 4 year old daughter in a stroller and headed down to 46th street (only 10 blocks or so), shot the video in under 10 minutes and there you have it.
Would have lingered longer but it was a bit cold. I'm going to try and catch it later at night...just to see how they light the event. Blaine has had really groovy lighting at these events in the past.

Why is this in the "not very magical" forum? Isn't Blaine a magician? Isn't this a wonderful magic effect?

Anyway, I'm getting into town just hours too late to see him. Dang it! Thanks for posting the video. Great work.

I was wondering the same thing. I guess its because the original post was about the ad campaign. It should have at least been in " magicial names in the media"
