Watch David Blaine's Bullet Trick Go Horribly Wrong

Watch David Blaine's Bullet Trick Go Horribly Wrong

David Blaine thought he had died when one of his tricks went wrong.

The 43-year-old magician was filming the famous bullet catch trick for his show Beyond Magic, which aired on E4 last night.

In a new twist on the old trick he now pulls the trigger on himself, in front of 20,000 people in Vegas.

He gets himself ready, by popping on a bullet proof vest and putting in a gum shield with a cup in it to catch the bullet. So far so Blaine. But shortly before he pulled the trigger the cup started moving. He carried on regardless, using the laser to make sure the bullet hits the right place.

He pulled the rope, which pulled the trigger, and fired the bullet into the cup, but then, fucking hell, it all went wrong and the gum shield shattered.

Speaking over the clip, David said: "Time just started to move really slow. When the bullet struck the cup, there was a high-pitched ringing in my ears and I felt an impact on the back of my throat.

"I was sure the bullet went right through my head and that I was dead. Suddenly I became aware of the pain and it brought me back. At that moment, I realised that the mouth guard had shattered again, and I was alive." Alive, but I reckon he had fully shit his pants.

And now to settle an argument between TheLADbible team, please tell me who is better:
