Milk Can Escape A lonelyfingers Finds collection

In 1901, Harry Houdini introduced his own trademark, the Milk Can Escape. In this act, Houdini was handcuffed and sealed inside an over-sized milk can filled with water and make his escape behind a curtain. To represent the heightened drama, Houdini invited members of the audience to hold their breath for the duration of the performance. The act was advertised with dramatic posters that proclaimed ‘Failure Means A Drowning Death’. As an act of magic, lonelyfingers débuts with The Milk Can Escape Collection and as Houdini did so many times, we will try to escape from multiple locks and from complicated sealed tanks. From now on please hold your breath together with us.
