March 24, 2022 was the 148th birthday of Harry Houdini. I am unsure what was up this yr, but it surely appeared like each single magician on Fb had a submit about Houdini's birthday, excess of the traditional quantity. That may be very cool.
I had deliberate on doing a Houdini Week of video tie-ins with my Magic365 Mission. On Tuesday I did The Trick That Fooled Houdini. However Wednesday a significant sinus headache stored me from making a video. Thursday, which was his birthday, I produced two movies. The primary exhibits an escape from a pair of Hamburg 8 Handcuffs, however then a little bit of historical past on the cuffs and a shot of me sporting Houdini's personal Hamburg 8s. Then a second video posted later within the day had a routine I created on Houdini's Vanishing Elephant Phantasm. It used a standard piece of magic equipment, a Silk Cabby. I spotted someday that the Silk Cabby was very related in look to Houdini's Vanishing Elephant Cupboard, at the least from the descriptions. We do not actually know precisely the way it appeared as a result of it was by no means photographed, nor does it survive to today.
I've yet one more video on Houdini however I will not be posting it till Saturday. The Elephant video has not obtained close to sufficient views but, and I have not posted it over on Instagram. So I will use it for tomorrows video after which submit yet one more new one on Saturday. Under are right this moment's two movies, take pleasure in!
