'Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It's David Blaine!' Social media users share hilarious memes after master illusionist pulls off his 'Up'-style balloon flight stunt over the Arizona desert

Social media users have shared a series of hilarious memes after master illusionist David Blaine successfully pulled off a death-defying balloon stunt. 
The 47-year-old took to the skies over the Arizona desert on Wednesday, tethered to 52 helium-filled balloons in a caper he dubbed 'Ascension'. 
Blaine reached heights of more than 24,000 feet before he released a parachute and skydived back down to earth. 
The event was broadcast live on YouTube, with millions watching on in both terror and delight.
A significant number of viewers took to Twitter to craft clever quips and memes in real time, with many comparing the stunt to the 2009 Pixar film, Up, in which a widow ties thousands of balloons to his house in order to float through the sky to reach South America. 
Others made memes poking fun at the sheer randomness of Blaine's stunt, while one quipped that the famous magician was 'playing chicken with 2020'. 
Several shared humorous images that expressed their relief as the magician landed safely back on land.

  1. Dont know about that 'FLAT EARTH' comment. NaSA does too many shady things to give them that much money. Anybody else NOTICE that on the movie "Dr. Strangelove" the FLAT EARTH MAP Kubrick deliberately put on the big round war room table is now GONE throughout the entire movie??!!! MANDELA EFFECT strikes again!
