Houdini takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

It looks like Houdini has been called out by his friend Charlie Chaplin to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. This is pretty great.

In case you're wondering, the front clip is from The Master Mystery and the water wheel is from Haldane of the Secret Service. Always thought this water wheel escape was pretty harrowing as that really is Houdini on the wheel.

Thanks to @rj32 on Twitter.


  1. If Houdini were alive today, with his big heart, he'd totally go in for this, and you can bet he'd do it more spectacularly than anyone.


    1. That's true. He thew himself into charities like this. Like War Bonds. He'd make sure he raised more money than anyone and then publicize that he raised more money than anyone. That's our Harry. :)
