In 2003 David Blaine came to London and hung above the Thames in a glass box without food for 44 days and nights.
We devised a way to get on Dave’s nerves without giving the police legitimate cause to move us on.
It involved us sitting below the box for 24 hours straight, chanting one word over and over… and getting the crowds to join in.
Simple, but truly irritating.
David later revealed on a UK morning TV show that if we’d carried on for much longer he’d have quit.
Then… he asked to see us.
“I usually don’t request to do any shows… unless I’m asked to and I have to… So, I requested to do this show because that one was so brilliant”.
So… from 2003 (a full two years before the launch of youtube!), check out the video of the day David Blaine came in to the Bam show.
Classic: Streetboy pretends to be helicopter police and evacuates houses in central London
Radio used to be a lot more fun.
Back in the early 00’s Lexus gave us an SC430 just as the model was launched.
It had a superloud stereo and the roof came off.
What were we going to do with that thing? 😉
We’ve dug out the pilot of In Your Face from over a decade ago… and it’s still kinda funny!
In 2004 Bamster created a hidden camera show format, which covertly recorded audio and video with a pair of glasses.
Every TV company turned it down and it pretty much went away until an unexpected call from Bravo TV two years later.
We made a pilot (watch below!) and from there it went on to be successfully commissioned and hit the screens in the UK in 2006.
Ratings were great. It is, frankly, a mystery as to why Bravo never went on to commission further series. The bastards.
