For the past three years, the gazillionaires at Google have hosted an exclusive invite-only conference for tech VIPs and celebrities in Sicily, Italy called The Camp. The Camp is an expensive, mysterious trip to Italy to…well, I have no idea what they do there. There’s a website, but you have to have a secret password to access it. What I do know is that they hire famous people to perform for their guests. This year, one of the performers was smooth-voiced magician and sometime Pussy Posse member David Blaine. And he brought a silent big-eyed assistant with him. No, not Lukas Haas; he brought a frog. A frog that he sent up and down his esophagus like it was an elevator.
David is clearly running out of stunt-style magic tricks to perform, because Page Six says that David’s latest act involves regurgitating a live frog. A Google Camp source claims that David walked on stage with a live frog in his stomach. He proceeded to hurl it up and showed everyone that it was alive before swallowing it again. The source said that David told the audience that he was training himself to create an aquarium in his stomach. The source adds that David’s deep-throating of Dat Boi’s cousin happened right before everyone was scheduled to have lunch. So most people were kind of grossed out.
When asked for comment about his frog-swallowing trick, his rep said: “That’s all probably true. He’s pretty amazing.” Amazing? He barfed up a frog. Just a regular ol’ frog. Get back to me when he barfs up a frog holding a tiny banjo that starts singing “The Rainbow Connection.”
This year’s Google Camp had about 100 guests, which included Charlize Theron, George Lucas, Alicia Keys, Pharrell Williams, Miranda Kerr and her billionaire fiancé. I have no idea what any of those people have to do with a Google conference, or what swallowing frogs has to do with a Google conference. I do wonder if any of those famous guests got something out of David Blaine’s trick besides feeling nauseous. My money’s on Miranda Kerr. Being able to swallow something and bring it back up is a skill that would definitely come in handy if her fiance were to call off the engagement and ask for the ring back. (Swallows ring) “The ring? No ring here. See? Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an appointment at a pawn shop to get to.”
