We’re afraid for renowned magician Dynamo, who will bury himself alive on live television.
For years, the TV personality, actual name Steven Frayne, has baffled the globe with daring acts like as squeezing through a tiny opening in the border barrier between America and Mexico and walking on water.
He even seemed to levitate over the Shard, dangling 1,016 feet above London between the two highest points of one of Europe’s tallest structures.
The 40-year-old is now taking things a step further by burying himself alive, which might be his most perilous move yet.
The magician posted a small video on social media teasing his forthcoming presentation, Dynamo is Dead.
‘Are you watching closely?’ he begins, shuffling a deck of cards with some of his most notorious illusions drawn onto them.
‘Dynamo allowed me to soar to impossible heights, to walk on water, to break barriers,’ he says.
‘But the greatest trick he ever pulled was convincing the world I didn’t exist.
‘So what happens when he vanishes?’
He goes on: ‘If I’m not Dynamo, who am I?
‘To do something I’ve never done, I need to become someone I’ve never been – Myself.’
As he shatters the screen, he warns: ‘Time for the next act.’
The press release for the feature length show claims Dynamo ‘is set to be killed by his creator’ and will see him ‘defy the odds and go beyond magic – burying himself alive.’
It continues: ‘Viewers will be left on the edge of their seats as they buckle up and prepare to watch Dynamo put his life on the line.
‘Dynamo will dig his own grave in preparation for his perilous and climactic feat six feet under, which will culminate in him laying Dynamo rest.’
The show will follow the magician as he explores reaching rock bottom amid mental health difficulties and the loss of his identity before embarking on the next part of his life and profession.
After Dynamo: Magician Impossible aired from 2011 to 2014, he stated he felt ‘like a performing monkey’ shooting magic for television shows.
The series featured him walking on water on the Thames outside the Houses of Parliament and was nominated for Bafta’s Best Entertainment Programme award three years in a row.
Speaking about why he embarked on a television hiatus, Dynamo said: ‘I stopped making Magician Impossible in 2014, and if I’m honest, I’d done TV for five years straight and I lost a bit of passion for it.
‘I felt like I was a performing monkey, making magic to fit in with the schedule that was given to us by the TV channel. I didn’t really enjoy it anymore.
‘I missed that live show experience.’
Dynamo is Dead will air live at 9pm on Sky Max and streaming service NOW on 14 December in the UK.
