Earlier tonight, ABC aired David Blaine: Real or Magic. Rather than freezing to near-death or busting out of some shackles, magician David Blaine pulled some handy card tricks and the like on everyone from randos in Brooklyn to A-list celebrities. Everyone from Katy Perry, Olivia Wilde, Aaron Paul, and Bryan Cranston to someone who's probably your next-door neighbor got to witness his sorcery firsthand. And, yes, they were blown the fuck away, as were thousands of people on Twitter who watched in both fear and astonishment at the tricks he was pulling.
Some were in so much disbelief that they're convinced Blaine is the son of Satan, or, for at least one person, the Devil's cousin. Like these 10 people:

I feel like even saying David Blaine's name puts me on some kind of hit list for the devil or something. It's too much. Too weird.— Jessica Phillips (@jesssica_brooke) November 20, 2013
