Intrepid balloonists are gearing up as we speak to take part in the first ever internet balloon race! Balloons will race across real websites spread across the globe ( yours too if you’d like a bit of traffic! ), collecting tokens and teleporting through rainbows. Extra boosts are hidden around the course to speed you and your buddies on your way to victory and 20 grands worth of luxury holiday action in a villa in Ibiza. Preparations are underway, but there’s still time to grab a balloon, or even attach your very own website to the track. We’ve been feverishly drawing clouds and balloons for weeks, so if you think it sounds intriguing have a butchers at this… there’s some sweet audio touches in there too. And Coming Soon: the Balloon-Cam embeddable widget, so you can follow your balloon’s progress from the comfort of your own blog. It’s the follow up to our last adventure for Orange, Good Things Should Never End. You can never have enough rainbows in your life, i say ;)
Also: Today coincidently happens to be the anniversary of another balloon first – the first ever public demonstration of a passenger carrying hot air balloon … aha! Or so it says on the Google homepage ;)
PS. Igor has a good run down of the epic team involved in thrashing this beast into existence!
