It looks like Will Smith‘s family is trying to kill David Blaine, and the mystical endurance artist seems to be enjoying it.
Considering this is a man who lived underwater for a week and spent over a month suspended in a plastic box above London, the Smith family really should have done some homework before trying something as mundane as drowning him in their pool.
Blaine was invited to the Smith household to film a segment of his recent 90-minute ABC special ‘David Blaine: Real or Magic.’ The program, which aired on November 19, included Kanye West, Jamie Foxx, Harrison Ford, Bryan Cranston, and Katy Perry assisting Blaine as he performed seemingly inexplicable card tricks and indurance tests, one of which included slowly stabbing himself with an ice pick.
However, not all of these tricks made the final cut, and that’s what’s illustrated in the above photo. Editors saw fit to cut a segment where Blaine was being held underwater by Jaden Smith while Mr. Independence Day himself used his iPad to keep track of how long Blaine could hold his breath.
If you’re wondering how long that was, or whether the Smith’s finished the job, I guess we’ll never know. But from the photo it looks like Blaine is pushing 14 minutes already. That’s got to be some kind of record.
