David Blaine shocks Kanye West, Will Smith and Jada Smith, Woody Harrelson and other celebrities as he pushes an ice pick through his hand on camera. No blood, no fuss, no muss… just magic. Believe it?

The magician was promoting his 90-minute special, “David Blaine: Real or Magic,” when he performed the trick in front of the celebrities.

Needless to say, the reaction ranged from shocked to stunned to amazed howls.

Blaine also performed his tricks for the special in front of Katy Perry, Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, George W. Bush, Olivia Wilde, Jamie Foxx, Aaron Paul and “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston.

In a twist for this special, Blaine performed the parlor tricks in the homes of the celebrities.

“For this special, I wanted to focus only on the magic and the people, so for the first time in over a decade, I concentrated just on doing simple things that could be done anywhere to capture the reactions that I fell in love with,” Blaine told EW.

In the video, Blaine asks Smith to check out the ice pick to make sure it’s real. He feigns poking it at his wife Jada and confirms, it’s real.

Blaine then proceeds to push the ice pick through the top of his hand… until it comes out the other side.

The reaction among celebrities is pretty astounding. Check out the video below and be sure to follow TheImproper on Twitter for the craziest celebrity news.
