The most savage memes about magician David Blaine’s latest stunt
Magician David Blaine executed a pretty wacky stunt involving balloons on September 2, 2020. He labeled the feat “Ascension”, a stunt during which he floated 24,000 feet in the air over the Arizona desert using 52 helium balloons as his method of flight. David Blaine streamed the stunt live on YouTube and parachuted back to Earth once he was satisfied with his “magic” trick.
One could say Blaine is the ultimate entertainer in the midst of trying times. Some people loved the stunt and others thought it was nuts. Because there are undoubtedly people who found Blaine’s death-defying stunt ridiculous, he’s been circulating around the internet for more than just press. We all know what the public does these days to people they think look ridiculous: they plaster the internet with memes of them.
