The latest David Blaine stunt is called 'Electrified' and features musician Andrew W.K. performing a million volt keyboard solo that will electrocute the magician for a 72 hour-straight publicity stunt.

The whole thing seems far fetched, but basically the idea behind the stunt is that David Blaine has been balancing on a tiny, elevated platform that has been hooked up to a device that can shoot a million volts of electricity onto David. The power for this stunt is actually being generated by the public on a device called the Ultrabook. People can control the intensity of the lightning and the direction of the light and sound.

Andrew W.K. hooked up a keyboard to the device and proceeded to play a long keyboard solo that simultaneously shocked David Blaine while up on stage. The video showcases the interview that fuse conducted with the musician. Stats for Faux Lightning Instrumentals Trending: Older & Chilly
