Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis definitely know the difference between a magic trick and a murder trick!
The Hollywood super couple recently got a super unexpected visit from magician David Blaine who was in their neighborhood and decided to pop in for a few illusions.
The master of endurance somehow coached the couple in how to hold their breaths for more than 4 minutes! But David wasn't done yet. He wanted to show them just how long his lungs could go without oxygen!
Olivia explained to David Letterman last night that Blaine actually asked her and Jason to hold him under water for 15 minutes!!!
“He wanted us to hold him under water for 15 minutes. The best was, he said, ‘It doesn’t matter if I’m thrashing, if I’m begging for my life, you can’t let me up. You just have to hold me down.’”
Umm, can't we just stick to the coin behind the ear trick? This sounds WAY too dangerous!
After Blaine asked how long it would take to get a Medivac helicopter to the house, Olivia and Jason knew they wanted NOTHING to do with this and refused to be a part of the trick!
What the what?!?
Only THE David Blaine could come up with an idea to nearly drown himself to death and then think, "ta da!"

And who doesn't?
David Blaine captivated New York audiences all weekend by standing on a platform between two tesla coils pumping his body full of electricity for three days straight!
The amazing act of endurance, titled Electrified: One Million Volts, captured the attention of two notable NYC visitors who go by the name of Woody Harrelson and Alicia Silverstone.
Both actors were spotted at Pier 54 with their significant others by their side and a witness said:
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!

David Blaine has a trick up his sleeve for just about any occasion.
The illusionist was pulled over by a New York City police cruiser because he was cruising around on a BMW motorcycle with no license plate!
While the lot of us would have drove off with a ticket, he somehow managed to
hypnotize sweet talk the cop out of fining him and just got a handshake instead.
We've seen Blaine pull off more impressive feats, but we're always jealous of anyone who can successfully talk their way out of an annoying citation — especially when they don't have boobs! Ha!

You've just been OWNED, David Blaine!
A stuntman in Israel has broken the famed magician's endurance record by standing on a pole for an impressive 35 hours in the middle of central Tel Aviv. He had no food, but he did have a catheter and the strength of will to stand for 35 hours.
Check out the video to see just a snippet of his time on the pole (above) and to hear his pride over beating Blaine's record.
Sounds like a challenge to us, David? Are you up for another go???
Isn't he worried about breaking the magician's code of silence??
Luckily, it's just for kids.
David Blaine had a fun time revealing the secrets of Houdini's escapes to children at the opening of The Jewish Museum's Houdini: Art and Magic on Friday.
Looks like he was showing the kids how to break out of handcuffs, which could be very useful for the future.
