Minnesota is called “The Land of 10,000 Lakes,” and there’s one near the town of Crosby that has a full-scale Jason Voorhees tethered at its bottom. It was put there back in 2013 by diver Curtis Lahr, and the man still visits regularly to make sure the statue is still there.

This video is made as an attempt to answer some of the many questions about the use of harness (armour) received after the publication of our video “dressing in 14th century armor”.
