David Blaine: Drowned Alive

After being buried alive for seven days, entombed in ice for three days, fasting for 44 days as he dangled from an acrylic box over London’s Thames River, and perched atop a nearly ninety-foot-high, twenty-two-inch-wide pillar before plunging to street level with only cardboard boxes below to break his fall, David Blaine will again take it to the max this Monday night as he attempts to break the record for holding your breath under water. The current record is 8 minutes – 58 seconds. That’s not all. Starting May 1 (yesterday), Blaine will live in a human sized aquarium for seven days before he attempts to break the nine minute mark. To prepare himself for this rugged event, Blaine has been in strict training with the Navy Seals and the World Class Free-Diving Team. In addition to this stunt, there will be more of Blaine’s street magic from a casino in Las Vegas, Angola State Prison in Angola, Louisiana, and a New York art gallery. If you have never witnessed any of David Blaine’s work, I encourage you to experience it. You won’t believe what you are watching!

  1. the guy is demonic if you ask me!!!

  2. I just might watch this. The guy is at least trying to be inventive. If it was on Fox, I wouldn’t watch it.

  3. i second what kathryn said

  4. Great point about Fox, Tapp…I know exactly what your talking about. I have been watching this guy for a lot of years, and I think he is the real deal (by real deal, I mean that he actually does the stunts advertised). He blows Houdini out of the water…at least what I have read about the man.

  5. After 4 minutes without oxygen, you start losing brain cells.

  6. good to finally hear from you, jon
