The magic industry must not be doing too well these days. David Blaine, the dude who once ripped his heart out of his own chest, has enlisted the help of My Little Pony spokesperson and Party/Good Times ambassador Andrew W.K in an attempt to sell tickets to his next stunt.
Well, that’s not the real reason he’s enlisted the help of W.K. The crazed musician will be manning a tesla-powered keyboard, according to The 405, which will be cabled up to Blaine. W.K will then bust out a solo, probably while overly headbanging and doing devil horns, as 1 million volts get sent from the keyboard through some cables and into Blaine’s body.
Blaine will be trapped for 3 to 4 days for this trick, so not sure if the solo will go for that long also, but here’s hoping it doesn’t. Andrew W.K commented on the experiment, stating “A 1,000,000 volt keyboard??? This is absolutely a once in a lifetime musical experience and probably the most dangerous musical instrument ever created! I’m absolutely electrified and terrified by the opportunity to play a keyboard solo with so much energy, and to use this incredibly powerful device to send a musical surge through David’s brain! I just hope he can withstand my high-powered party piano playing!”
The stunt will take place this coming Sunday at Manhattan’s West Street/11th Avenue and 13th street at 7:30 p.m.
Personally, I’ve always thought that his magic was real; Blaine would use it to stay famous, but this is sure to be entertaining. The whole thing will be live-streamed through YouTube.
