David Blaine: Totally Faking It

“Endurance artist” David Blaine is supposed to be hanging 60 feet upside-down over an ice rink in Central Park with only brief respites for medical check-ups and to answer nature’s call.

Splash reports that, while photographing Blaine, they noted the artist taking breaks that lasted up to 20 minutes at a time and earning disappointment from the assembled onlookers.

Even the security guards hired to oversee the event reportedly aren’t finding Blaine to be very magical.

Blaine would appear to be taking it easy, at least until the ABC special covering his latest silly stunt airs tonight. Then maybe he’ll get back to getting upside down again.
