How did he do that?

like stated before, this show is interesting to watch. trying to figure them out can sometimes be extremely difficult. to the people who think this man is a miracle worker: its fake. do not become obsessed with his lies.

Hm. Its just a trick, the point of the trick is to fool people into thinking its real until they find out its not. But still, I`d like to see you do it and magically make it possible :-) Its still better then David Blaine: "Oh Looky I Can Sit In A Box All Day!" Pffft... anyone could do that, Criss takes the time to make it look real, even for a second. His goal is to entertain people, and looking at some of the comments he does that. So Lighten Up A Bit :-D

It`s totally fake. The wind can`t be blowing his jacket when he stands up. If the wind blows him jacket while hes standing up, then why didn`t it blow it the whole time he was down? Oh and for the last time. IT`S NOT A BUTTCRACK! IT`S HER JEANS!!!! jeez..

weighted shoes? they`d have to be pretty f*cking heavy, and still, there`d be an enourmous strain to the front of his feet.

There are a few other possibilities, though:
* he might have a hidden spike under his shoe (note the ground is dirt. not concrete), and he stuck it in the ground erlier in the episode, and this, in combination with the 90 degree bendable thing on his legs, lets him do the trick.

I`m not entirely convinced that he uses a pole, but the folds in the shirt suggest it. Another possibility that I`m surprised nobody has thought of is weighted shoes which is much more plausible than legbraces and ground anchors.

He is a Mindfreak....I used to watch him but don`t much anymore. He does some amazing "magic" tricks...I know they are gimmicks but he DOES make them look amazing. My daughter thinks he`s Jesus.

*Adding on to Qtpil13`s idea of editing out the stick criss angel supported himself by *

- They probably just filmed this, with fake crowd and all, in the same green room they used to hoax the moon landing...

"thats one small step for man, one giant leap of gullability for anyone who thinks this guy is very talented..."

Fake, of course but still entertaining to watch. And whoever said that he couldn`t have a pole in his leg or whatever: I`m sure they didn`t film the entire episode in one shot, he could`ve taken out whatever was supporting him before they shot him levitating.

Everyone seems to say that this clip is `obviously fake.` It`s a magic trick, so clearly it is going to be set up. That`s kinda how it has been done for two thousand years. The idea is that we have no idea how he may have done it, and we are left to only guess. Therefore, it is a very good magic trick.

standing like that is physically impossible. Even if you`ve got leg strength out the wazoo, the center of gravity is so far from the center of ballance that there is no way you could keep yourself up. You`d have to be anchored to the ground, or have something supporting you.

yes, you can actually see the tail end of something brown and squarish. All throughout the thing his shirt looked suspiciously straight and low to the ground to me.

how could it NOT be the leg brace? the thing that kept his knee bent?
maybe he could set it by specific movements, thats why he could still do the "levitataion" in the next part. hey you guys, gullible isnt in the dictionary!

I noticed when he started to lift up his leg, the woman (obviously in on it) says something along the lines of "OMG Look at his leg!" Which anybody who knows anything about magic knows is to distract peoples attention. Conveniently, at the same time she does that, the camera passes behind her obscuring your view of Chris Whatshisface.

It wouldnt be so dreadfully obvious if she hadnt screamed "Dont look at Chris!"

You are aware most of the people who are supposedly *random people* he actually has as casted people
He will pick 1 random person sometimes
but there is always one non real one...an actor to act all impressed with his tricks...

but anyways
I still have no idea how he does those things
There are still people around watching it in person that are actually real and I just dont understand how he does some of the crap he does...
the man is a genius

and by the way they wouldn`t use that metal pole at the back of his legs like some people are saying because later in the episode he makes his whole body levitate

criss angel is a fake hardly any of the stuff he does actually takes any talent and most of it is set up. he does another episode with voodoo dolls and one where he makes spiders and snakes appear in peoples hats and they are obviously set up.

theres a metal piece at the back of his legs inside his pants which are only able to turn 90deg backwards... they could also be made till they reach the waist if he dosent have that strength
