David Blane Performs Icepick Through Hand Trick For Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Pharrell Williams

September 29, 2016


This is a video of magician/illusionist David Blane performing his ice pick through the hand trick for fame astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson and famed musician Pharrell Williams (who looks like he's about to pass out the whole time). Does he actually put the pick through his hand? It sure looks like it. And Pharrell Williams screaming sure sounds like a squeaky toy. I think David had a hole drilled through his hand and then covers it with prosthetic skin (it's so elastic) to perform the trick. He's crazy, I wouldn't put that past him. Plus that way when somebody tells him to cover his eyes and no peeking he can still peek. I'm on to you. Not to brag or anything, but I have seen David Copperfield perform twice. And Gallagher once (he picked a guy from the audience to come smash a watermelon on stage but the guy sent his son up instead and the kid slipped and broke his arm and Gallagher ended the show early, I was devastated).

Keep going for the video, then tell me how he does it so I can do it too and be a hit at cocktail parties.

    It didn't sound like Pharrel was all that "Happy" about that.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I have exactly one question. Why is Pharrel on a podcast with David Blane and Neil Degrasse Tyson? And who's that white guy who barely says anything?

  • LoquaciousTech

    The great thing is that it only took you five days to copy a youtube link from your partner at hedonistica. That's the real magic we witnessed today.

  • Even I'm a little ashamed of doing the first thing.

  • First! Yay!

    On the other hand, she's not impressed.
    ... wait let me rephrase, your HAND is not impressed.
