Craig Engler's profile photoCraig Engler  –  1:28 PM (edited)  –  As part of our final announcement we’ve placed 4 journalists in a totally blacked out room. With a paramedic standing by. Seriously.
They’re asked, while in total darkness, to identify objects in a tank. The first one is a snake! Here’s a pic from our night vision camera.
It’s a live demo of what you’ll see on our upcoming show Total Blackout, which is a crazy crazy show. I’ve never heard people laugh & scream more while watching a show demo like they do when they see this one.
