Alex Magala’s sword swallowing act was most certainly edge-of-your-seat stuff, but plenty of Britain’s Got Talent viewers were distracted by the somewhat amusing ‘do not try this at home’ warnings tonight.
It’s important info of course – ITV would soon be in trouble if they didn’t show the warning message – but it just seemed a tad redundant given what Magala was doing.
After all, while there’s plenty of ad breaks to get a few things done, it’s unlikely to be a bit of sword swallowing mixed with dropping from a pole (blindfolded no less) towards spinning drills, is it?
I mean, who doesn’t have this gear lying around?
Don't try this at home?? Damn il have to drag the pole and bed of nails back now! #BGT
