Came across this while reading my NewTeeVee feed: Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, whose reports on Late Night with Conan O’Brien are always hilarious (his past gems include skewering Star Wars fans waiting in line for the release of Attack of the Clones, and doing the same to a bunch of fans at Bon Jovi concert), showed up at the site of illusionist performer David Blaine’s latest publicity stunt. Triumph interviews a few scattered fans — a crowd that includes Liz Gannes, writer/editor at GigaOm’s NewTeeVee blog — and can barely keep himself from cracking up as Blaine takes a 15-minute coffee break in the middle of the stunt. Stay tuned right to the end for the Spiderman-style finish.

  1. that's gold.

  2. Mathew, nice formatting of the Triump video on your site. When I clicked thru from the reader.. I expected to goto YouTube. But wow, an embedded NBC clip (when did they start doing that?) when I pressed play… I expected to see the “only available in the U.S.” crap .. but it played in Canada! (and was damn funny)… maybe a change is finally coming to network distributed video.

    • Actually, the original version was removed from YouTube, but I found a clip on DailyMotion :-)
