Last night, ABC aired Beyond Magic featuring magician David Blaine. Most of the show had Blaine doing his signature “street magic” with famous celebrities like Dave Chappelle, Drake, and Margot Robbie. But the 43-year-old magician’s big moment was a reprise of a 2009 stunt, where he shoots himself in the face and catches the bullet in his mouth.
In ’09, he had his friend shoot him, but for the 2016 update, he wanted to pull the trigger. He had a specially made mouth guard with a cup in it to “catch” the bullet. Then lined himself up holding a string to the trigger and the forward facing camera of his cell phone. Then three-two-one…BLAMO!
Friend-of-the-show Noel is less convinced.
