    Straight Jacket Escape

    Here is a video of a straight jacket escape I did for a carnival. I think it went over pretty well.

    Strait* jacket.

    A few points. First, you did a good job - you got out! Yay!

    Was this just footage someone gave you, or was it planned? If it was planned, next time tell them to turn their phone on its side. If it wasn't planned then ok, you deal with what you have and that's cool.

    This looks like a fairly standard jacket - so it probably has the three buckles up the back, a crotch strap, and it seems to only have the arm straps, not the loop on the belly. Is that correct?

    If so, I recommend one simple thing to get much bigger reactions out of the crowd. Struggle. Let them see you work at it. I would re-order the steps you take as well. I'll send you a PM with more details.
