Inhaling helium straight out of the tank is dangerous.. you can easily freeze your lungs permanently damaging them. Same reason you use a balloon to do whippets.

Was there any need for it to say it was fake on the vid? It`s obvious... but cool.

Wow, that video was BAAAAAAAD. The bubblegum balloons were especially noteworthy, as I may have been able to produce the same effect with MS Paint.

Fail, Frenchies. Fail.

"Doesn`t anyone on IAB watch mythbusters? It takes ALOT of helium balloons to lift a person a couple of inches off the ground"

Now you`re lying, it can be done with a single balloon.

It would need to be drating massive of course, and about the size of a house.

I can`t believe how many of you guys took this seriously. It`s obviously fake and it`s obviously entertaining.

Fun fakery. A good idea and well implemented.

Scott_2150...humans do have very high bite strength, especially men. Short jaw, relatively powerful jaw muscles - humans are well set up for biting. If we had fangs, we`d have more dangerous bites than almost all breeds of dog. I think that aspect of the film could be done for real - note that none of the supposed flights lasted for very long. The weakness would be in the balloon - no way could a thin film of bubblegum support the weight of a man without tearing immediately.

Apart from the insufficient lift, of course. You`d weigh less if you were standing on scales with a helium-filled bubble, but you wouldn`t weigh so little that you could glide.

Bubblegum does NOT sound like that when it pops. Also, those guys must have some strong jaws. I call an obvious fake.

If you even paused for a moment to wonder if this was real then are not as good at simple science as you think.

I assume 99% of IAB people saw it for the bit of harmless fun it was. :)

3 points:
a)Your lung comacity is not enough to make that big baloons

b)The amount of healium to lift a person is 88 liters which i dont believe can fit in that little baloon

c)Baloons are not that strong-if you somehow got a gum baloon big as a house it may stay in its roundy original state-but this fella? nope

I`d do this, but f*ck Helium in the balloons, I`d go for Hydrogen. And then I`d light up a victory cigar if it worked.

And yes, then I`d die in ball of flames. But what a death. What. A. Death. You could YouTube that sh*t and it would get like, a million hits.

almightybob1: "I wonder, if you breathed in helium beforehand, maybe you actually COULD make a floating chewing gum bubble..."

You can do it with a rubber balloon. Just take a piece of chewing gum the same weight as a rubber balloon and blow that up to the same size at which the rubber balloon floats.

I couldn`t do it, but if you`re good at making chewing gum bubbles ...

The stupid government might think this was real since they believed that whole "balloon boy" incident a while back, and followed a helium balloon thinking it contained a child.

Besides that, Avatar was entertaining, more than a minute and a half long, and epic. This was just plain stupid.

Mythbusters did a show a while back on the myth of a child carried away by a bundle od ballons. Nearly impossible, but they managed to fly the girl. She was happy.

I swear people have the attention span of a gnat. it says at the end of the video "it`s a fake!"
can we really be so jaded that this can`t be amusing even tho it`s obviously `shopped? I mean really, I`m willing to bet more than half of y`all saw Avatar. not much difference if you ask me...

"Im sensing a mythbusters experiment here"

I think i saw an episode where they lifted a young girl up with balloons. It took an insane amount however which gave this away as fake from the get-go. but was a cool video nevertheless. It would be cool to see if just blowing a bubble after inhaling helium would cause it to float.

I thought it was gonna come up with a message that said "You wanna do this, right?" and then the guy would fall and die and it would say "...What about now?" and morph into some stupid anti-drug campaign trying to connect having fun with your friends and dying.

But then I remembered what site I was on and forgot about the whole notion.

Hehehe that was cool, a good idea well executed. At the end they link to a video showing you how they did it, which is always nice.

I wonder, if you breathed in helium beforehand, maybe you actually COULD make a floating chewing gum bubble...
