Hey all. Sorry for the unplanned and unexplained hiatus, but my life has been absolutely crazy these past couple of months. Hopefully things will get back to normal here soon. I did just finish up another visit with my friend from the first set of Inflatopalooza videos, and we shot more footage. I don’t know how much of it will make it here, as some of the reviews on those seem to be mixed. That said, here’s some popping from his visit to give you a preview
P.S. There may have been another biker in the mix in a few of the shots. I need to check with him to see whether or not he wants his handle released. If so, I’ll update this post later.
Yup, there’s still more Inflatopalooza (we packed a hell of a lot into that 3-day weekend ). This one really wore us out, but it was a lot of fun. Hope you all enjoy.
Recently I learned about Rhode Island Novelty from a couple of different sources. All of them told me that they sold cheap, crappy inflatables that popped too easily. Perfect
Horses: Fun, wish they were bigger, stupid squeakers are a PITA to remove (and even more annoying if left in).
Small B&W orcas: Squeakers are easy to remove, cheap (but small). Nice bang
Dolphins: These have bells in them… not squeakers… FUUUUUUUUU- Otherwise, they also pop rather nicely… jingle jingle jingle POP!
Big blue whales: These are actual Bestway ride-ons. An amazing deal for $4.80 / ea.
Annnnnd I’m spent! You cannot imagine just how beat I was by the end of this. I spent the better part of a day setting this up, filming it, and cleaning up the mess that I’d made. Was it worth it? Of course. Will I do it again next year, only bigger? Hell yes!
The madness continues. One of these days I will pop a boat without the assistance of an air compressor.
I’d love to try this with a real innertube one of these days (and the proper gear… not sure if motorcycle leathers would provide enough protection). I was getting impatient near the end of the video and reaching for the knife that I had on the bookshelf, but the tube let go before I needed to use it.
Forget the eternal Batman vs Superman vs Spiderman vs Wonder Woman debates. Who will win in the epic battle of Mr. MotoX vs. Spiderman bop bag?
Sit-popping beach balls and b2p’ing some balloons on my air compressor.
Another variety show. Lots of small balloons, a beach ball, couple of small alligators. To answer the question that was asked 50x on my YouTube account: yes, I have a video of me busting the turtle SOMEWHERE, I’ll look for it and see if I can get it online one of these days.
Working my way through a pile of smaller pool toys. A few 20″ beach balls, small alligators, a bop bag, and a swim ring specifically.
