David Blaine: Real Or Magic: David Blaine Is So Good At His Street Magic Job

I’ve had my own trouble with David Blaine (original member of the Pussy Posse [no apologies]) in the past, when he made me stand out in the rain for no reason, and he certainly has a bad rap because of all of the super lame stuff he does and also his personality and voice and demeanor, but MAN can he put a card in a place where it wasn’t before! He is so good at that! His newest special David Blaine: Real Or Magic aired last night and featured appearances by all of our favorite celebrities: Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, Kanye West, Jaden Smith, Harrison Ford, Psy, etc., etc. All of the celebs. And, man. No joke: I loved it! Hahaha. (Please feel free to quote that in the press leading up to the Blu-ray release of David Blaine: Real Or Magic.) The shit that he does? Give me a break! HOW DOES HE DO IT?! (Ugh, you try to write your own blog post about it if you think it would be so easy.) He was really big into spitting water at stuff in this special, which I was not as thrilled about, I have to say. He swallowed fish and spit water into Woody Allen’s tub until the fish came out again, a trick that Steve-O mastered 100 years ago. (Is the trick that he didn’t do the barf noises? If so, that was a major improvement, I’ll give him that.) He would spit water on the street and it would reveal the name or color that a person was thinking of. Obviously the fact that he would reveal the name of the person’s dad or whatever was very impressive — I already told you, I was LOVIN’ IT — but I could have done with less spitting. Hahah. He did tricks for Katy Perry and Katy Perry subsequently 100% wanted to date him for real. Harrison Ford looked like he was going to cry. (“Get the fuck out of my house! …okay?) Olivia Wilde didn’t have a shirt on. He guessed Aaron Paul’s iPhone password. (PS: CAN YOU GUESS HIS PHONE NUMBER? JUST WONDERING, I’LL CALL 2 CHECK IF YOU GOT IT RIGHT.) He touched Will Smith’s shoulder and Jada felt it. He did something with Jaden’s iPhone. (Lots of iPhone work.) Kanye was impressed with how he stuck a needle in his hand. (Which was another disgusting thing that he kept doing.) (SO GROSS HOW DOES HE DO IT?!?!?!?) I don’t know, guys. It was great! This was my face the whole time: :-0 A ton of the celebrity clips are online, and you can watch them after the jump. And you should! PUT A LITTLE MAGIC IN YOUR LIFE, LOOSEN UP, WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE SOMEDAY!
