Ask people what their two favourite things in life are and they’ll probably say Chris Evans and escape rooms.
Okay probably not. But put the two together and you’ve got a recipe for a pretty funny video.
The Marvel star recently teamed up with Omaze to raise money for Christopher’s Haven, a Boston-area apartment complex that provides temporary housing for families of children who are being treated for cancer at nearby hospitals.
To raise money, Evans is giving fans a chance to participate in an Escape Room adventure with him.
For those who don’t know what an Escape Room is, the 35-year-old set up an elaborate prank at a Comicazi comic book store in Boston to demonstrate the concept of it.
And it came with pretty hilarious results:
Setting up a Captain America doll with a hidden speaker, Evans hid in the basement with a walkie-talkie and surprised random shoppers browsing the store.
After convincing them to accept a challenge, he gave hints on how to get out of the Escape Room, asking them to find codes, yell ‘Hail Hydra’ and use tools to solve puzzles.
Eventually it all led to a door leading to Evans himself – not a bad prize.
Fancy your chances of getting out of an Escape Room with Chris Evans? Fans can enter for a chance to win here. You’ll just need a minimum donation of $10 – which goes to Christopher’s Haven.
The campaign continues until February 3.
