Dynamo Walks Straight Through USA/Mexico Border Wall In New Sky Show

Mind-bending magician Dynamo appears to have walked straight through the border wall between Mexico and the United States for a stunt on his latest TV series.

Whilst this is only footage filmed on the camera of a bystander, you can catch the whole sequence tonight on Sky One, or right now on NOW TV.

While Dynamo is no stranger to danger, this stunt represents the first time he's made a mockery of US President Donald Trump - as far as we can tell.

That border wall was one of the key promises and totems upon which The Donald's successful campaign for the US presidency was built. It definitely wasn't built to be undermined by a skinny magician from Bradford.

However, that's exactly what the illusionist - who is really called Steven Frayne - went and did.

In footage that was filmed on a spectator's mobile phone camera, the magician seems to link his arms through the gigantic metal fence while leaning against it, before simply easing himself through the tiny gap.

He makes it look pretty easy, to be fair. The US Border Patrol won't be too happy about that.

Speaking about the stunt afterwards, Dynamo described it as 'probably the riskiest piece of magic I've ever performed'.

He added: "It took me three years of planning to achieve this and I'm just happy me and my team came back safe and unharmed,"

The new series, which is called Dynamo: Beyond Belief, is a three-parter that tracks the magician's journey back from illness on the way to performing a selection of crazy stunts in glamourous locations across the globe.

He'd previously been forced to take a two-year break from his career because he was suffering from Crohn's Disease back in 2017.

Dynamo was diagnosed with the chronic illness as a teenager, but had a particularly bad flare-up that forced him into hospital.

While under medical care, he started planning the new show and has now returned with bigger and better tricks than ever.

Unfortunately, he also recently revealed that he'd tested positive for the Covid-19 virus after developing a persistent cough and suffering from 'lots of aches and pains'.

As a Crohn's sufferer, he is in the higher-risk category for the disease. Hopefully he's already bounced back to approaching full fitness.

If you're keen to see this stunt again, it will air on tonight's episode of the show.

Dynamo: Beyond Belief airs at 9pm on Thursday on Sky One and all episodes are available as a box set on NOW TV.
