He was the greatest escape artist the world had ever known.

No trap, no bondage, no cage, chain or restraint could hold him, too nimble and dexterous was he, too gifted in the ways of escape, too naturally inclined toward personal freedom.

But fashions in entertainment change, and with time his audience dwindled. He knew something had to be done.

His biggest stunt yet, to bring him into the modern world and allow him to escape his approaching obscurity.

He leapt into a swimming pool full of iPod headphones, promising to find his way back...

…the body was never recovered.
