Oscar Wilde out does David Blaine

Inspired by David Blaine’s most recent death defying stunt mini Oscar Wilde will tempt fate by trying to outdo the daredevil Blaine.

Known more for his play writing, Oscar is attempting to not only suspend himself upside down, but do so locked from within a jar of pickles.

As seen in the pictures from the event, Oscar was first scrubbed down for sanitary reasons, then equipped with sophisticated breathing mechanics for while he is submersed in pickle juice.

Oscar is attempting to spend 160 hours immersed and locked in the pickle jar.
