David Blaine Took Social Distancing To The Extreme On Balloon Ride

Magician David Blaine was hanging around all afternoon. He grabbed hold of 52 helium filled balloons in Arizona, and didn't let go until he was over 20,000 feet in the air.

In the movie, "Up," they flew a house attached to balloons, but he was hanging on with one hand and a tank of oxygen. His original plan was to do it in New York, but authorities shot that down for safety issues. Not good for the tourists to see you possibly crash into Macy's, so he flew over the desert of Arizona. The original plan was to soar up to 18,000 feet, but he just kept going. He eventually let go and safely parachuted back to Mother Earth from 24,900 feet.

Why? I don't know, but the video is pretty cool. Someone even isolated the sound of him farting into thin air. Here's the video. You can fast forward to the cool parts...
