Harrison Ford, Star Wars celebrity and a man of few words, had a choice phrase for illusionist David Blaine after the magician pulled off a mind-boggling card trick in the American actor's own kitchen.

In a recently resurfaced YouTube video, the Brooklyn, N.Y.-born magician, who is known for his high-profile televised stunts and one-on-one sleight of hand, asked the actor to think of any card in the deck.

The segment, from the ABC special Real or Magic, was originally posted by Blaine in January 2014, but is enjoying a resurgence, thanks to social media.

The 72-year-old actor is shown fingering through the deck, looking for his card, when Blaine decides to change directions.

"Here's what we'll do, Harrison," he says. "Do me a favour. Grab a piece of fruit for me, one that we can open up."

Ford, hesitantly, obliges and selects an orange from the bowls of fruit on his counter.

"Say your card out loud," Blaine requests, to which Ford quietly replies, "Nine of hearts."

Taking the fruit and placing it on a cutting board, Blaine slices halfway through the orange.

"See how there's a card in the orange?" Blaine asks, as Ford, puts his hand to his heart.

"No way!" shouts someone out of frame.

Looking stunned, Ford unrolls the wet-looking nine of hearts for the camera to see.

"Get the f--ck out of my house," he grumbles, as his face breaks into an incredulous grin, "Ok? Whoa."
