We have been following his exploits and insanity for almost a decade now.
There are two questions for which we do not need an answer: Why does he do it? How does he do it?
This Saturday, April 10, 2010, he will attempt an escape even the great Houdini found difficult and dangerous.
The show organizers plan to place the Canadian phenom in a keg of beer and seal it. As if this was not enough — and frankly, shouldn’t it be — Dean Gunnarson will be handcuffed.
He assures us he intends to escape in full-view of the audience.
“They’re going to take a metal drum, fill it full of beer, handcuff and chain me up, submerge me inside the drum and then lock the lid on with chains and padlocks from the outside,” he told the CBC for broadcast across the country. “The cool part is that I’m not going to use any smoke or any mirrors, or anything like that. People will be able to see the whole escape.”
Dean Gunnarson is a teetotaler. He tells us that he has never even tasted beer. We are guessing he does not begin drinking on Saturday.
