Watch: A Sleeping Bag in a Can

Now here’s something weird from our favorite Crazy Russian — a U.S. military sleeping bag in a huge sardine can! It was packed in August of 1952, and 65+ years later, we get to watch a Russian in the USA telling us all about it.

Betcha didn’t see that coming.

Looks like it had two keys on the can at one time, but one went missing, and that second key would have helped him open up the can. But he figured it out, as Russians are wont to do.

If you’re not too tall, it might not be a bad idea to keep a few tins of sleeping bags in your trunk or bugout shelter.
