David Blaine Returns With Electrified Special

He’s hung about Central Park, he’s held his breath in a tank of water for 17 minutes, and he’s been buried alive – magician/daredevil David Blaine is at it again.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Blaine is set to appear in a new endurance-related special called “Electrified.” A trailer for the stunt shows the 39-year-old endurance artist wearing a futuristic-looking bodysuit in between two conductors.

Also according to The Hollywood Reporter, Blaine has appeared in several TV specials over the past several years that have centered around his stunts. Blaine’s last stunt, entitled “Dive of Death,” involved his hanging upside down without a net high over New York’s Central Park for 60 hours in 2008. Unfortunately, the grand finale of that special didn’t go according to plan because of unexpected changes in the weather conditions.

Other endurance stunts Blaine has performed in the past include holding his breath underwater for 17 minutes and 4 seconds, being buried alive for a week in a see-through coffin and being encased in a block of ice for 63 hours.

Check out the trailer for “Electrified” below:
