Video: David Blaine baffles Ricky Gervais with ‘needle through arm’ trick

We have no idea how Blaine did this, so we can sympathise with Ricky.

Earlier this week we saw magician David Blaine bamboozle Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul with some tricks from his new show ‘Real or Magic’.

Now a clip has been released of Blaine confounding Ricky Gervais from the same show. After failing to impress The Office creator with a card trick, Blaine pulled out the big guns with a ‘trick’ that involved pushing a needle through his arm.

In fairness, it looks very real and we’re pretty sure Gervais isn’t in on the act either.
