Illusionist Chris 'Mind Freak' Angel made an additional attempt at publicity when he dedicated his latest stunt to Cameron Diaz, his supposed new girlfriend. Either he is really in love or Diaz asked him to mention her a lot to counter the pictures of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel kissing all over Europe. C'mon, mentioning her once and discreetly is sweet, but to over do it by giving her name, nickname, and current movie is laughable. Splash News Online, is quoting the dedication as follows:
Just minutes before the cement box closed around him at 7:30 a.m., Angel, 39, announced, “This is dedicated to my new girl. You know who you are. I’ll be thinking of you.” Says a source, “He didn’t mention her by name, but everyone knew who he was talking about.”The box was then hoisted 40 feet above the ground, and was scheduled to plummet to the earth exactly 24 hours later.The following morning, hundreds of fans gathered to watch his escape and a big screen showed Angel inside the box, kicking at the walls and dejectedly holding his head in his hands. When a countdown clock hit zero, the box was sent plunging to the ground, without anyone seeing him emerge.The crowd went silent, but then erupted in cheers when Angel suddenly appeared atop the screen’s nearby scaffolding, waving to the crowd and with his hand across his heart.
After his stunt, Angel turned to the crowd and said, “I’d like to dedicate this escape to my girl ‘Trouble,’ a.k.a. Cameron. I love you baby. Have a safe trip to Europe for your Shrek tour.
