Becoming friends with a balloon artist is always a smart decision; case in point: this ridiculous life-size version of Solid Snake made solely out of twisting balloons. Balloon artist Bruce Carr’s friend was having a birthday, and instead of twisting him a mere toy poodle, he crafted the masterpiece seen below. We’re not sure exactly how many balloons it took to construct, but we imagine that there’s a Party City somewhere out of blue balloons.
Considering it’s construction, it’s quite life-like, complete with a grey bandana and eyeballs. The realism of it almost makes it creepy — something that if it were standing in your hallway at 1:15 AM would trigger cardiac arrest.
Quite honestly, it puts every other balloon artist to shame. Somewhere there’s a guy with suspenders and an iPad cursing the name Bruce Carr — after all, somebody is bound to ask him to make a Solid Snake — we know we will.
