The Masked Magician is BACK!

David Blaine is hanging around again...

David Blaine's new big stunt will not be staying awake as previously rumoured, he's saving that for later in the year, instead he'll be hanging upside down for a couple of days. (Sparks the Lorikeet is not impressed).


"Daredevil DAVID BLAINE is preparing for a dizzying new stunt - he will hang upside down above New York's Central Park for three days and two nights.

The illusionist will be deprived of food as he is suspended six storeys up on a highwire for his Dive of Death, which will be filmed to air on U.S. TV on 24 September (08).

He will even be forced to sleep upside down.

And members of the public will be invited to interract with the 35 year old.

He says, "There are always some crazy things. I get flashed quite often. Luckily, mostly from girls."

Blaine's previous stunts include spending 44 days in a glass box above London and more than two days encased in an ice block.

He recently made history by holding his breath for more than 17 minutes - and is this year preparing to attempt to break the world record for sleep deprivation."

A quick internet search reveals Blaine may have been preparing for this effect for several years now.

But he's not the only magician who sleeps upside down:
