    David Blaine: Real or Magic?

    Did anyone else watch this?

    I began to tire of his underwater/suspension antics over recent years, but always liked his 'street magic' schtick back in the day. His ABC special on Tuesday night was reminiscent of that.

    I thought it was bad ass. Loved the celebrity reactions -- especially Aaron Paul and Harrison Ford.



    Also got a huge kick out of Woody Allen as well.

    Don't care how it's done. Still quality entertainment.

    I don't like to be tricked by Puerto Rican Jews. It usually ends badly, so, no.

    I watched some of it. The water regurgitation trick? Are you freaking kidding me? Is that real? And how the $#@! did he stick the needle through his arm? I saw the similar tricks explained on YouTube but this dude actually stuck it through his bicep. We're all the celebs in on this whole show?

    The same way he pulled off the head of a bird yet it was still alive or bit off a nickel....

    Agree with OP, love his street magic. That show last night was pretty dang cool, the Harrison Ford bit was incredible. I also was blown away by the Jayden Smith camera phone trick he did.

    Pretty awesome.

    I liked Oliva Wilde's scenes, seemed like David Blaine just showed up at their house in the middle of a pool party... one of the tricks she was in a bathing suit, the other they were in their kitchen with a bottle of Don Julio and shot glasses next to the cards. She seems fun.

    I thought it was a good show. I watched the first half, got the second half on my DVR.

    Read an interview where he said that all the physical torture tricks are training for his ultimate trick idea where he gets shot with a low caliber bullet and works the bullet out of his body without his hands or assistance. Dude is a bit off.

    He's been doing it for years, I'm pretty sure he creates his own tricks by now.

    I always liked his street magic $#@!. Some of it, like where he reads peoples minds and has the name of someone they are thinking of appear in ash on his stomach or forearm is mind-bottling.

    A few months back we were opening a new project we had just developed and had a big open house event. We hired this guy out of Vegas to walk around and perform magic. $#@!ing blew my mind. This guy:



    He did the credit card $#@! to me at the 3:50 mark and I basically $#@!. And then when he made the card fly around him at the 4:50 mark, I was convinced he was the devil.

    it's all about deck set up. i'm not saying that trick isn't badass, but with the proper deck set up, you can make cards do anything.

    of course, we didn't see the setup with the hundred dollar bill or if blaine got to inspect it. if he didn't get to see the bill at all that's amazing. and if he didn't handle the cards before handing them over, that's one thing, but we're missing a lot in the OP clip.

    We caught part of it and was pretty cool. one of the tricks that made stop and wonder was the one he did with Will Smith kid, the deck of cards and taking a pic. As blain is explaining what is going to happen he says in a minute I want you pick a card, I blurted out 3 of clubs to the wife and not 10 seconds later the kid says the same card.

    we both look at each other with a wtf

    That trick was one of the few I was skeptical about since we are never shown what the photo looks like. I also thought the kid's reaction was a little to sudden.

    But $#@! it, it's magic

    I get card tricks but how about the tricks he doesn't touch the cards? knows Aaron Paul's iPhone password? writes $#@! on the sidewalk that someone has in their mind? adds a certain number of cards to part of a deck a guy is holding in his hands with out touching them? knows the names of people that they are thinking up, putting the card that Jon Stewart picked in the bottom of his pockect, etc.

    Look I know their is a trick to all of it, but I thought the whole show was cool as hell.

    Look I know their is a trick to all of it, but I thought the whole show was cool as hell.
    I can't explain his tricks. He's $#@!ing good. But he DOES touch the cards at some point. They don't appear out of thin air. Whether he switches the money or the cards doesn't matter. His misdirection is always in an interesting odd direction which can rarely be predicted.

    There is no doubt it is nigh impossible to figure his tricks. He's amazing.

    I watched every second of the show. Amazing. He said one trick (can't remember which) took him 10 yrs to master. Maybe the needle through hand trick. My wife said "he probably has a tube implanted into his hand" which sounds crazy, but wouldn't surprise me.

    So where are the scars? Why didn't the tube show up on the x-ray?

    Anyone know if/when they are showing this again? I only caught half of it on my DVR.

    To me it looked like the needle was passing through different parts of his hand each time he did the trick. Of course I was not there so I can't be sure, could have just been the camera angles.

    I've watched the ford trick. I have nothing. I used to do very bad magic as a teen. The only thing I got us that he somehow manufactured fords card and put it in the fruit as he was cutting and pointing. Note Blaine cut the fruit, not ford. I'm convinced he put it in when he cut and pointed. What I cannot discern is how he got the nine of hearts as the card.

    This is actually somewhat possible. He did a Ted talk about the holding his breath stunt and showed footage of a DR trying to stuff a "re-breather" down his throat. It's pretty insane, like a big hose being shoved down his throat that would "breathe" for him so he could look like he wasn't breathing. The problem with the tube is that he would have to shove the needle through the EXACT SAME SPOT every time (which would leave a scar on his skin), also a tube would've shown up on the xray, wouldn't it?

    He's got to be one of the best of all time. So many of the tricks he does just don't make sense, especially the Jon Stewart one. That blew my mind. How does he put a card in somebody's pocket without them knowing? And it was under a ton of $#@! in his pocket. $#@!ing wild.

    I'm such a skeptical ass at times. I figured he was doing that stuff to celebrities/actors because they'd be the best at faking their reactions.

    I'm right there with you. I think all that $#@!'s fake. The celebs are in on it.
