Watch David Blaine shock Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul with a bit of close-up magic

Endurance artist and illusionist David Blaine has a new television special, Real Or Magic airing on ABC on November 19, where Blaine performs for people around the world and in front of celebrities like Kanye West, Jamie Foxx, Ricky Gervais, Katy Perry, Woody Allen, and Robert De Niro. The network has released a preview video of Blaine performing a bit of close-up magic with Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, and it's some classic, "What the eff David Blaine?" trickery. It’s a card trick with an improv element and Blaine plays it to perfection, slowly walking Cranston and Paul through an explanation of Liar’s Poker before revealing the result. We won’t ruin it by explaining exactly what happens, but it’s enough to say that Paul’s wife is so surprised that she walks into frame and can’t contain herself, swearing up a storm along with everyone else. Yeah, bitch! Magic!
