This is one of those blog posts where the title sums it up. David Blaine—well-known illusionist and “endurance performer”—floated over 24,000ft into the sky attached to some helium balloons yesterday.
David Blaine redefines magic once again for an unprecedented live event at a time when the world could use a positive distraction. Bringing wonder, hope and untethered possibility, David tackles his most ambitious and revolutionary feat yet.
This production was filmed in strict accordance with all CDC and OSHA Covid protocols and safety guidelines including testing, social distancing, use of PPE, quarantining, disinfecting and good hygiene practices.
“Ascension” wasn’t as weird as I expected. But then, the last time I paid attention to David Blaine was in the early 00s when he was really weird. I wonder if the air is cleaner up there.
