    This is a video of two Roombas with knives taped to them trying to pop each other's balloon a la Mario Kart battle mode. But you're gonna want to skip to at least 2:00 into the video because the first two minutes are just people talking because they don't understand they shoul... / Continue →

    This is a 4,302 balloon Poptimus Prime (which looks suspiciously like a cross between Optimus Prime, Iron Man and a Seattle Seahawk), allegedly the world's largest balloon sculpture made by a single person. That single person? John Reid. I don't know if he's actually like SI... / Continue →

    This is the Mario riding Yoshi balloon costume posted by Redditor Psypher108. Is that him wearing it? No clue. Is it one of his friends? Not sure. Did he just find the picture on the internet? More than likely. And speaking of finding pictures on the internet -- have you... / Continue →

    This is the LEGO dress made by designer Rie Hosokai to resemble a similar dress she made entirely out of balloons. Next up? A dress made entirely out of bread clips to resemble the dress made entirely out of LEGO to resemble the dress made entirely out of balloons. That's my... / Continue →

    This is the 20-foot long (it looks longer to me but I've ridden real dinosaurs though so I should know) balloon animal Acrocanthosaurus built by balloon-twisting professional (and awesome dude to have at a kid's birthday party) Larry Moss and his team at Airigami for Virginia's... / Continue →

    This is Pont de Singe, an installation art piece by Olivier Grossetête. It consists of a little bridge being suspended over a pond by helium balloons. It's not actually functional though, you'd wind up in the drink if you tried to cross it. Unless -- UNLESS -- you're a cat. ... / Continue →

    This is a Solid Snake balloon animal sculpture. You might argue he's not actually a balloon ANIMAL, but you'd be wrong, because he's a snake. Also, I'm not sure what the hell that guy from the carnival is doing there but he let goat-boy escape again there's going to be hell t... / Continue →

    This is a woman cosplaying as the house from 'Up'. Although truthfully, I don't really think that was artist Myeongbeom Kim's intention when he designed the piece. That's just my interpretation and it is the RIGHT interpretation. Art is whatever you want it to be and I want... / Continue →

    This isn't the first time we've seen the house from Pixar's 'Up' recreated in real life, but it is the first time we've seen it recreated in real life WITH A HUMAN PASSENGER ABOARD. Unfortunately the passenger was "professional" cluster-balloonist Jonathan Trappe and not a cro... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jeremy 'Balloon Man' Telford recreating a corner of Bilbo Baggins' hobbit hole Bag End out of 2,600 balloons over the span of three days. He does a good job. Sure if I had been involved it would have been way more detailed, but I wasn't invited to particip... / Continue →

    Remember the series of bald guys with breaking water balloon "wigs"? Well here's another series of the same thing, except with bald women. As you can see, this lady here looks suspiciously like a cyborg, so she probably short-circuited right after the picture was taken. Remi... / Continue →

    No f***ing way! These are two videos from Balloon Distractions featuring Buzz Lightyear and Ninja Turtle costumes made entirely out of twisting balloons. They are most impressive. I love how dude really gets into character too. He's all, "This is Buzz Lightyear, space range... / Continue →

    This is a video of laser aficionado Scott Stevenson popping 100 balloons lined up in a row with a powerful burning laser. Could the laser have done 200? Probably. Would I have continued watching after the first 100? Probably not. Kidding -- I could watch this kind of shit... / Continue →
