Watch '99 Red Balloons' Played Using Actual Red Ballons

You think those people who can make music out of mundane kitchen tools are ridiculously talented? Pfft, wait until you see what one man can do with nothing but balloons.


For those who aren't familiar with the song (YOUR LIVES ARE EMPTY), "99 Luftballons" or "99 Red Balloons" is one of the most famous one-hit wonder songs of the 80s. No ice cream party at the local roller rink was complete without this nuclear war protest song, originally performed by Nena. This version, created by Team Andrew (Andrew Huang) does away with all those pesky guitars and synthesizers and features the song performed using only balloons. Up next, "Come On Eileen" performed using only mulit-colored party streamers. Can't wait.

Imma let you finish Burt, buuuuuut . . . the original Neunundneunzig Luftballons was still the most bad ass song to come out of Europe in the 80s. Hölle ja!!!

(Fun fact - it was originally written as a nuclear war protest song.)
