Magician David Blaine is hitting the talk show circuit to promote his new tour, and is making believers out of late night hosts. “The Daily Show’s” Trevor Noah helped Blaine shove an ice pick through his hand without causing any injury.
The video is going viral on social media.
“It must be weird to be around a world renowned magician because I know I do it and I know everyone around you does it; Because, like, I don’t trust you,” said Noah. “Even when I greet you now, ‘Did you steal my watch?’ ‘Is my tie changing color?'”
Blaine in a subtle aside said he planned to do something “crazy.” He asked the host if he’d rather see a trick involving a “four-digit code” or an “ice pick.”
“A four digit number,” Noah deadpanned.
That drew audience laughs and an ice pick from Blaine’s pocket.
Noah confirmed it was real and Blaine seemingly shoved it through his hand, after the talk show host picked a spot on the back of his hand.
“Trevor, this is for you to keep,” Blaine said. “So could you just pull that out?”
And, he did. Check out the video below, let us know your thoughts and be sure to follow IM on Twitter for the latest in late night comedy.
