Criss Angel is MindFreak and AdFreak!

Criss Angel in Oasis Escape

Blabbermouth.net reports
Criss Angel will appear with Rob Zombie at Ozzfest today. The star of Criss
Angel Mindfreak
will be at the heavy metal festival to “interact with fans
and sign autographs from 12 noon to 3 p.m. He will periodically perform close
demonstrations including razor blades, metal bending, and mentalism outside of
the tent.”

The tour began on July 15th and will rock on until September. A&E is
along for the ride and presents a special two-minute Criss Angel illusion video
before each artist is introduced to the stadium crowds.

“Criss Angel Mindfreak” follows Angel as he captivates audiences with
mind-boggling demonstrations of his skills; behind-the-scenes as he researches
and executes his demonstrations with his crew; and as he meets celebrity friends
who drop by to willingly participate in his antics. “Criss Angel Mindfreak” is
an eerily entertaining series that juxtaposes reality with surreality

Mr. Angel performs not only on television but also in real life.
Blabbermouth.net observed his latest spectacular escape was staged not just live
but out in the open. Mr. Angel performed “‘Oasis’ in New York City’s Bryant
Park.

One of Angel’s most challenging escapes saw him in a sealed airtight
chamber, then submerged in a 4′ x 8′ x 8′ tank, surrounded by 2,000 gallons of
water. It took Angel just over 24 hours ? eight hours less than the 33-hour time
limit set to escape ? and appear on top of a brand new black Pontiac Torrent
parked a hundred feet away, surrounded by awestruck fans and media.”

We looked it up
because it seemed goofy
for a press release to be so vague on all aspects of
the story but so specific in mentioning where the avant-garde magician
re-appeared, “on top of a brand new black Pontiac Torrent parked a hundred feet
away.”

Sure ’nuff. Pontiac paid $3,000,000.00 for the right to advertise with
Mr. Angel’s image and show. Call us cynical, but we’re thinking it was more than
coincidence he re-appeared on the brand new vehicle fortunately parked in the
spot. Even more amazing is that the Pontiac people could find a parking space
they could occupy for up to 33 hours in a row.

So we kept digging. We found an insider’s media buying site
— the very cool Promo Magazine where the Criss Angel promotional tour
was discussed. “We want to immerse people in the Criss Angel: Mindfreak
experience,” said a rep from the media mogul. “We want to give people a feel for
the show.

“The more you connect connected [consumers] are, the more likely they
are to watch the show.”
