25 grand for a hot air balloon setup, sure thing. Makes my quiver a good deal.
So many things wrong about this. I'd rather enjoy the balloon ride without the board.:thumbup:
Wonder what they were paid to do the vid?

For anyone's whose sensibilities are offended by a promotional spot for a swanky German resort......

Let's not forget many, many (many) Level Thor's Hammer were allowed to crash and burn on the Nambian desert floor before they realized they would have to perforate the kite and then CGI the holes out during post-production.



Above and beyond the time and money spent.... capturing 2+ minutes of end footage also called for:

"The spectacular images created during this "driving and flying" exercise were captured by three 35-millimetre cameras, a special camera crane and a helicopter. 440 minutes of film footage was created in all. The crew consisting of 80 people filmed for up to 16 hours a day at temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius. No wonder that the 400 bottles of water and 60 litres of juice consumed per day were just as gratefully received as the 80 bottles of SPF 100 sun cream that were emptied during filming."

I've ridden long lines behind a boat and it's a very boring ride. I guess it's a cool novelty shot. Since the balloon has a release, it's probably not at risk. I'm with big kid. I'd rather ride in the balloon.

I've done the balloon ride many times. The wife said if she finds fedex dropped one off on the porch it had better have a roof and a sleeping bag with it.:D
A hot air balloon with BIG KID KITES on it would look awesome, but not with the roof over the gondola because it would catch fire from the burners. But it would look awesome.
