Illusionist David Blaine is coming back with another one of his wacky, crazy ass stunts. I know there are people out there that think he's a big faker, but I love the man and think he is spectacular. I was obsessed with his television specials like Street Magic and Magic Man and freak out every time he does one of his insane endurance stunts. Hello? Burying himself alive for a week with no food? Freezing himself inside a big block of ice? That man has had a catheter stuck in him more times than anyone should ever have to experience in their lifetime. In his upcoming special David Blaine: Drowned Alive, Blaine is going to be floating in an 8 foot sphere "human aquarium" for seven days and nights in front of New York's Lincoln Center. The only source of food he will have will be liquid nutrition through a tube. At the end of the 8 days, he will attempt to hold his breath underwater longer than the current record of 8 mins 48 seconds. Just like his other stunts, the public will be able to go up and interact with Blaine. Hey, if anyone lives in New York and checks Blaine and his human aquarium out, PLEASE email me pictures! I will totally post them on here! The 2 hour live special is set to air on ABC May 8th, with Blaine entering the human aquarium on May 1st. I hate to say this, but I fear that one day the guy is going to end up accidentally killing himself during one of these things, ohhh they make me so nervous!!
