Danger! Danger! High voltage!
Every few years, illusionist David Blaine does something incredibly dangerous and the world marvels over how the dude survived!!
Is he a legit wizard? A cyborg? A demi-god? We don't know!
We do know he plans to
stun shock us again in just a few days!
Bystanders and even YouTube viewers can control how much electricity the tesla coils pump into that thing for the three days he will live there!
We would poop our pantalones if we were about to meet our
certain possible demise, but somehow David just stares death in the eye and giggles like a little school girl.
"[Until the stunt,] I'll mostly be relaxing, meditating and playing with my daughter … and trying not to deprive myself of sleep."
The action begins at Studio Pier 54 on Friday and, assuming the magic man makes it out alive, he genuinely doesn't know what might be next.
"I don't know how I could ever top this. This is an overly-ambitious idea, and I'm literally shocked that it came together. This is one of the craziest things that I ever dreamed up, and I don't know how I could go beyond it."
Good luck, pal! We hope you don't wind up extra crispy!
