David Blaine has been terrorizing the world with his special brand of “endurance art” since the late 90’s, and in his first stunt since 2008’s disappointing Dive of Death, he stands amid Tesla Coils as he is zapped by an estimated one million volts of electricity.
The thing is, Blaine is literally ruining the environment with his crappy magic. Yahoo! reports that the atmosphere will be negatively impacted by his childish obsession with lightning.
“Here’s the thing about this stunt, the image speaks for itself, there’s no reason to explain it because visually it’s stronger than anything I’ve ever done” Blaine said in a BTS interview.
The trick, labelled “Electrified,” might SOUND thrilling (if not purely for the potential risks), but believe me, it is not interesting to watch for more than .05 seconds. It’s just too planned.
If you doubt my words, watch the streaming video of the stunt, which is mostly just David waving and grinning awkwardly as the smell of burning back hair flutters through his nostrils.
