Hedonist extraordinaire Andrew WK is to play a one-million volt keyboard through the body of magician David Blaine.

The party veteran will perform the stunt at in New York on Sunday (October 7), where the instrument will send electrical currents through the body of the magician, Rolling Stone reports.

"A 1,000,000 volt keyboard???" the rocker exclaims in a statement. "This is absolutely a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience and probably the most dangerous musical instrument ever created!"

He added: "I'm absolutely electrified and terrified by the opportunity to play a keyboard solo with so much energy, and to use this incredibly powerful device to send a musical surge through David's brain! I just hope he can withstand my high-powered party piano playing!"

W.K. will play a keyboard powered by coils that will surround the magician at New York's Hudson River Park Pier 54. The million volts will surround Blaine for three days and three nights.

Needless to say, don't try this at home, kids.
