So you’ve got a *giant* balloon, what are you going to do with it? Wallop people with it, in the name of physics. Obviously.

Director's Notes:

We set out to proove that air has mass. About 9 or 10 people made the film; the giant balloon was bought on eBay.

Nominee: Best Demonstration, 2011

SciCast Notes:

Utter genius.

It’s a universal rule of comedy that hitting people with balloons is funny. So walloping them in the face with a monstrously huge balloon? Hilarious. And all the funnier because the film plays it completely deadpan until the physics is covered.

This is exactly what I was hoping for when I started SciCast. Love it.

[the film is a sequel, of sorts, to Balloonium Experimento, SciCast Awards 2010 Nominee and well worth a look if you haven’t seen it.]
