Mondo Bizzaro

Lawks and lummee!! What in the name of Harry H Houdini is a popping here then?
Lungbusting, levitation, ramping up the camp and meringue bouffants all round - that's what.

The amount of 'Elnett' used (David going for the 'flyaway' type) to keep those silky superstructures in place must surely have shot the first holes in the ozone layer.

David Copperfield and Bonny Tyler - Holding Out For a Hero



Almost as brain quaking as Uri Geller's appearance in Daredevil, or Batman riffing on the The Beatles 'Paul is dead' rumor.

I'd love to see some joker overdub this clip with...


Cliff Adams - The Night Rider (better known as the "all because the lady loves" Milk Tray music)



Actually all you need to do is turn the Youtube sound down, press play on both clips at the same time and you're there - works a treat.

Well, thanks for that. What an absolute shocker!! What was she thinking? And how could any 'illusionist' be even remotely proud of that lame effort? The FX were better in Monkey.

I love the way DC starts to look really bored at 2.39 into the footage. Grand - yawn - Canyon.

I don't think you'd get away with it now - what with all those new health and safety reg's and that.

Have you tried it with the 'Night Rider' clip synched as a DIY soundtrack? Works so well and the added bonus of every time Bonnie bellows a trumpet starts playing.

two things:
don't try the pressing 2 buttons at once schtick it just crashes your computer! ;)
also why were you looking for clips of david copperfield or bonny tyler?

It was one those half remembered things from years ago - A grown man gliding round the Grand Canyon in the lotus position - I had to check on the 'tube to see if it really did happen and wasn't just some crazy 80's dream. But it's even more bonkers than I remember
