For his latest special, illusionist David Blaine decided to take his tricks to his famous friends. On "David Blaine: Real or Magic," he visited the likes of Katy Perry, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, Ricky Gervais, Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, and even Harrison Ford.

From shoving a screwdriver into his hand, to crazy card tricks, to eating glass and more, it was just as much fun watching the celebrity reactions as it was enjoying the tricks in the first place.

The best reaction, though, came from Ford. After watching Blaine's trick, Ford simply told him, "Get the f*ck out of my house!” Of course, it was just a knee-jerk reaction to being shocked, but it was still pretty hilarious.

Over at Rolling Stone, Gavin Edwards thought Gervais had the best reaction. Gervais watched Blaine thread a needle through his arm. "Oh, what the f*ck Seriously! This is mental," Gervais exlaimed. "This is not a trick. You’re sticking a f***ing needle through your arm. What are you doing?"

It's those reactions that Blaine told Zap2It keep him interested in his craft. "When I do magic for people ... it's almost like I live vicariously through them. I thrive off of people's reactions," he said. "I look for those kinds of moments where the person is completely unguarded and reacting as they would if there wasn't a camera."
