David Blaine’s Freaked Out Celebs Respond On Twitter
David freaked out many everyday citizens during David Blaine: Real or Magic, but of course his celebrity “victims” are the topic on everyone’s mind. Ricky Gervais looked like he was going to faint when David stabbed himself with a giant needle, and the typically enthusiastic Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul stated, “That’s the craziest thing I’ve seen in my entire life, obviously.”
Olivia Wilde took to Twitter to explain why she was scantily clad during her segment with fiancé Jason Sudeikis, while Ricky stated that his “flabber” was “gasted” — much like Kanye, who didn’t speak for an entire ten seconds (a new record) during his spot.
FYI @davidblaine was going to let me drown him in my pool but we ran out of time. That’s why I’m wearing a swimsuit. He’s crafty ;)
