Client David Blaine "Dines" with Sharks

He's been entombed. He's been frozen in a block of ice. He's been hung upside down for 60 hours.

Now, the latest feat of American illusionist and endurance artist David Blaine involves sharks -- Great Whites to be precise. Sharply clad in a dinner jacket and black tie, Blaine floated about a shark-filled tank to promote men's wear designer Adam Kimmel's brand. “I haven’t done a proper fashion show yet, so I do these presentations instead as a way to create the identity of the brand,” Mr. Kimmel told "The New York Times."

In 2006 City Aquarium had the privilege of working with Blaine on another of his daring exploits, "Drowned Alive". For this event, Justin Muir and his team designed a water-filled sphere, eight feet in diameter. Muir also regulated the life support systems, maintaining proper oxygen and salinity levels. Then, Blaine did the really hard work: he remained submerged in the sphere for over seven days! At the end of the submersion, Blaine held his breath underwater in an attempt to beat the then-current record. Although he came up short, Blaine subsequently shattered the record during an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2008. For more information on "Drowned Alive" check out our Case Studies.

We congratulate Blaine on his latest stunt, and wish him further success as he continues to explore the outer reaches of mortality.
