David Blaine's next stunt will involve him trying to hold his breath for as long as possible. David will go on Oprah's show on April 30th to attempt to beat the Guinness World Record live. The record is currently 16 minutes and 14 seconds.
David tried to break the record for breath-holding underwater in 2006, but failed. David has already been buried alive in a coffin for a week, lived in water for 7 days and fasted for 44 days.
I guess if you're going to make yourself go brain dead, you might as well do it live on the Oprah show. Hopefully, he won't be wearing any clothes while he attempts to break the record. I mean, he has to give us something to look at while he's holding his breath for that long........

*UPDATE!* - HES DONE IT!
David Blaine beat the world's record for breath holding on Oprah today. He was down for 17 minutes. The previous record was set by a woman in Switzerland for 16 minutes 32 seconds.
Towards the end, David's heartbeat started to get all wonky. David didn't die though and he was even able to speak to Oprah shortly after he came out of that huge snow globe.
He told Oprah, "I can't believe that I did that." Please. 17 minutes ain't shit!...... I know a Rasta Man who can probably go a good half hour before exhaling........
