I like to think that for the next three weeks Harrison kept finding different playing cards hidden in food around his house.

Cool trick David Blaine.
I would've made him cut the orange before I told him what card it is.
It's pretty clear how this works...
Ok I'll bite, how does it work? I can't imagine how I could push a card through an orange without the camera noticing...
That's why he's a magician and you're not!
There's a reason the card is rolled up. Try pushing a soda straw into an orange. You can push a soda straw right through an apple if you do it right.
The bigger question is how he got him to choose 9H. That's probably standard magician stuff but I know dick all about anything.
Alternatively, he could be doing what he's been doing and straight up faking it. That IS an actor, there.
Seriously, usually I hate the guy who is like "that magic isn't real!" but Blaine mostly got famous for camera editing tricks.
The real answer obviously is that Harrison is in on the trick.
Note the convenient "I just happened to be cutting this vegetable right before David Blaine showed me a trick involving cutting open a fruit." setup with the (surprisingly clean) knife and cutting board.
Also having him specifically say "Get the fuck outta my house" is another way of Blaine saying "there's nothing up my sleeve." It's to make people believe that Blaine couldn't have pre-set anything, since it's someone else's house and not his workshop or something.
It's true there in Harrison's house but what does that mean really? Nothing. Our mind just makes assumptions about it.
(ugh did I really type 'there' instead of 'they're'? Kill me.)

That dude is so old. almost as old as movie tricks.

He should have said, "Nazis... I hate these guys."

Harrison tries so hard not to say anything but you can just feel the vibe on him saying "I really don't want to have to rifle through all of these fucking cards to see that mine isn't in here."

My problem with people like David Blaine and Chris Angel is that they try to convince gullible people that they are actually doing 'real' magic. guys like David Copperfield and Penn and Teller don't pretend what they're doing is real. Everybody knows it's a trick. But the newer sort of gonzo street magicians really try to manipulate people and it bothers me.
