If you didn’t catch David Blaine’s magic special on ABC last night, don’t worry. The best stuff is already on Youtube, like Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul’s freak-out reaction to a mindblowing card trick.
The special basically involved David Blaine doing freaky shit in front of his celebrity friends, and watching those celebrity friends freak out. The best bit, perhaps, was Ricky Gervais’ response to Blaine sticking a huge needle through his arm, which doesn’t look like magic so much as it looks like David Blaine sticking a huge f**king needle through his arm.
Honestly, I don’t know, and neither does Gervais, though I think we’re both erring on the side of, “Yup! He’s sticking a needle in his arm. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS GUY?”
Gervais’ uncomfortable reaction, however, is priceless.
If that doesn’t do it for you, in another segment, we get to see the reactions of Will and Jada Smith, Cranston and Paul, and Woody Harrelson and Kanye to Blaine sticking an ice pick through his hand. It is also freaky, but not as freaky as wondering why Woody Harrelson and Kanye West are hanging out together.
