David Blaine aired his new TV special David Blaine: Beyond Magic this week, doing a bunch of tricks for a bunch of celebs—as one does in one’s TV special—including Dave Chappelle (he’s back folks!) and Canada’s own Drake, both of whom had pretty ridiculous reactions to one of Blaine’s creepier tricks.
Can you blame them? Put your lunch down and watch this whole clip.
Nope. No you can not. Because WTF WERE THOSE THREE LIVE FROGS DOING IN HIS MOUTH OR STOMACH OR WHEREVER THEY WERE!?
This is a crazy stunt, let alone the fact that Chappelle had just drawn the frog moments before when asked to choose a creature that’d fit in Drake’s hands. Like, what if he’d drawn a moth? Or a cockroach? Were they in the some little, compartmentalized terrarium in Blaine’s stomach? Weird, weird, weird!
When the first frog comes up and Blaine spits it into the champagne flute—which is filled with water—and tries to hand it to our boy Drizzy, he recoils, saying, “I don’t want that. I don’t want that.” Our thoughts exactly.
Chappelle is a little less squeamish with the frogs, but even he has to cover his mouth with his scarf when the third and final frog comes up and out.
All the grossness aside, this group looks like people we’d want to hang out with. Also in the crowd are the NBA’s Steph Curry and Jimmy Butler, and about a dozen others. There is so much bro’ing down happening in this room you can practically smell it. Watching borderline disgusting magic tricks is always better when you’re with your best buds.
