Posted by Michael on November 12th, 2018

Plastic wrap is some serious stuff… you might only know it as a convenient way to cover that bowl of left overs, but it is also used to secure pallets of goods for shipping. It can be very, very strong and, worse yet, it is air tight (which is why it is so good in the kitchen). Vancouver’s Damien Carriere posted this clip featuring an escape he managed from industrial strength plastic wrap while suspended upside down!

Posted by Michael on September 25th, 2018

This is kind of a strange video from escape artist Christian Wedoy. He shows what happens when an untrained young lady tries her hand at one of his escapes to illustrate how difficult (and dangerous) escape acts are in real life.

And one more thing: do not try this at home… do not talk your girlfriend into trying this at home, either!

Wizard of Odd TV, a web series focusing on some of the world’s more unique performers, turned their attention to Rick Maisel, the only escape artist around who pits himself versus a full functioning front loading washing machine. He is, by the way, also a multiple world record holder and we think he currently has the highest upside down straightjacket escape record David DaVinci is planning to challenge soon.
