Apparently, in addition to cancer, diabetes, alcoholism, insanity and heart disease, Human Cannonballism can run in families.
The stunt that sparked that story was apparently part of something bigger:
Javier Téllez told NBC 7/39 that his goal with One Flew Over the Void is to create a powerful political message about open borders.
During the performance on the beach in Tijuana, American Dave Smith will be shot out of a cannon while dozens of psychiatric patients from a Baja Institution perform.
The other element of Téllez’s display involves 35 mental patients from Mexicali, who will be dressed in circus costumes and performing on the beach alongside the human cannonball.
For sheer weirdness factor, there’s nothing like mixing Human Cannonballs, performance artists and mental patients.
