David Blaine. Was that what it was? Bloke says he's going to stand on a pole for 35 hours then jump off it into some cardboard boxes. Bloke then proceeds to stand on a pole for 35 hours then jump off it into some cardboard boxes.
This is the world's greatest magician? The world's premier illusionist? Where is the magic? Where the illusion? If it really was all it seemed, then how dull.
However, if it was revealed that it wasn't actually Blaine up there, but an animatronic dummy combined with some video trickery, that would at least be interesting. But it's still deathly dull - jumping onto some cardboard boxes is hardly a thrilling climax. Now, if he had jumped off and - oh, I don't know - turned into a flock of ravens in mid-air, that would be magical.
