Rehearsing with my Harbin sawing this evening, for the hell of it I decided to film this little routine to see how it looks. My assistant here is Mystic Ted, who joined my entourage a while back to be our resident psychic.

When you did the cpr thing, the legs moved as well, so just a bit of advice to watch that, because it makes it look like one. maybe if you pinned them down or didn't do it so hard that wouldnt happen

Thanks for the feedback - I quite like the comedy aspect of the legs flailing up and down as I give Ted CPR, but you're right in that it does go against the idea of him being sawn in two at that point. I'll give it some thought, maybe try it both ways.

I don't know if this is something I'll ever do live (doing the sawing with a human under the blade is just too much of a crowd pleaser), but it is fun having the video out there as a quirky piece to stand out from the crowd.

Justin - aw, bless - how could I say no to eyes like those? Smile

I'll give it major points for originality. I don't see why it isn't something you could do live. You could really play up the comedy if you had an audience there.

I got a kick out of it. I thought it was great cinema. Corny, cheezy and LOTS of fun. The silent film look made it play well. Kudos!

Best,

Tim

I have to admit... I actually laughed out loud when you started doing CPR on the teddy bear... Hilarious! Funny, Classy, and slightly disturbing... I love it!
