If mid-week blues have got you feeling low and you’re in desperate need of a pick-me-up, this two-minute-long video is just what the doctor ordered. The video shows a man popping balloons using knives and has collected nearly 14 million views on Twitter so far.
Dubbed ‘Twitter Balloon Guy’ on the micro-blogging site, the clip shows Jan Hakon Erichsen using knives in different ways and situations to pop balloons. Erichsen goes extreme lengths to destroy balloons and that’s what makes the video both entertaining and unnerving at the same time. It’s one of those things you can’t watch but also can’t do without watching.
So sit back, relax and enjoy this balloon popping ride.
