I wonder why he chose London for this stunt. Surely it would
be far more lucrative to perform it in Las Vegas.
Personally I don't think it will happen, and if it does, it certainly
won't be for 44 days. I bet there's a clause in his contract
which states he gets the full fee from Sky and Channel4 even if
he aborts the attempt.
Mind you, for a million quid I'd be willing to try for 45 days.
Any offers !!!!!!
Charles, David Blaine started out as a street magician, there were a series of programmes about him on channel 4 a few years back. Now he's into "endurance stunts" - like living in an ice structure etc...
David Blaine seems like a bit of a useless wonder to me. Now a neat trick would be for him to disappear....for good.
There was a very funny clip on "It shouldn't happen to a TV presenter" last month of Eamonn Holmes trying to interview David Blaine on GMTV, but he didn't answer any questions - he just sat there staring at Holmes and grunted occasionally.
I think they should attach the perspex box, with whichever David is inhabiting it, to one of the barges permanently moored in the centre of the river opposite Potters Fields by a long rope so that it floats up and down with the tide...
Any landlubber can do the trick in a dry field that's not moving.
A million quid ?
The world's gone mad.
Instead of sitting in a small see-through box, I suggest he just hires City Hall instead for 44 days, and we all go to squat in there with him for the required period and share the reward too..
If he really is getting this huge amount of money from these two organisations for going through with this nonsense, it points up something vaguely obscene and perverse about the way our society is going, unless of course the aim is all along to give the money to charity.
That's the only outcome that would make me happy.
If it is all being done for personal gain and a desire to get an audience for reality/celebrity tv, I think we should go along with very vocal protests to make the two sponsors feel ashamed at wasting money on trivialities, when there are lots of impoverished good charitable causes in London who could put a million quid to proper use for the benefit of society.
