Watch the Full Length Stream of David Blaine's "Ascension"
Check out "Balloon Boy 2.0" as magician and illusionist David Blaine goes soaring into the clouds by using something from every kid's childhood dream... a bundle of balloons. Once Blaine reaches his target altitude, he will strap himself into a parachute backpack, and then release the balloons and free fall to earth.
With this performance Blaine hopes to redefine magic once again for an unprecedented live event at a time when the world could use a positive distraction. Bringing wonder, hope and untethered possibility, David tackles his most ambitious and revolutionary feat yet.
