Illusionist-cum-daredevil David Blaine is currently in the midst of a shocking new stunt, in which 1,000,000 million volts will pass through his body over a three day period. Sparking things off last night (Friday October 5th), Blaine has set up shop at Pier 54 in New York City for his trio of dates that he is calling; Electrified: One Million Volts Always On.

For the stunt, Blaine has surrounded himself with the massive amounts of electricity using Tesla coils - named after their inventor Nikola Tesla. Blaine is also wearing a chainmail bodysuit to work as a barrier between him and the electric currents, as well as a helmet fitted with a special visor to protect his vision and a specially designed passage through the coils that allows breathable air to flow through to him. He is also wearing special noise cancelling headphones, allowing him to communicate with the people below him.

But the stunts doesn't just come to an end on Sunday night, as party-loving rocker Andrew W.K. will be joining Blaine at around 7.30pm on Sunday to hook his keyboard up to the million volts. According to W.K.'s website, "Andrew will perform a unique keyboard solo using a tesla coil powered instrument in which David Blaine will be imprisoned as 1,000,000 volts of party music surge through his body."

The whole thing is being streamed live on Youtube at www.youtube.com/electrified and is sponsored by computer maker Intel.

The stunt is the latest in a long line of bizarre stunts Blaine has gotten himself into, including hanging upside down over Central Park, being encased in a block of ice and being buried alive.
