Street magician David Blaine, who visited the Philippines for the first time, requested his escorts to take him out on the streets of Manila to perform for regular people (pictured above) prior to his Sept. 12 show at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

He was accompanied to a depressed community near Agham Road in Quezon City, where he brought his act for those who couldn’t afford to buy a ticket to his show.

At his Araneta show, David stayed underwater for 10 minutes and 28 seconds, breaking his own record of just over seven minutes.

“And he did it in Manila!” proudly announced the host, Assi Petesh.
