Not CGI: The Balloon House From ‘Up,’ Live Action Version

Yes, someone replicated the balloon-lifted house from Pixar’s “Up.” For real, or at least a reasonable facsimile thereof:

It’s from an upcoming National Geographic Channel show called “How Hard Can It Be?” Apparently, not hard enough to stop them.

    You just know Falcon is jealous.

    We are running out of Helium, sort of. Check the article- Red Ice’s website isn’t the only place to find that out either if you don’t like clicking on links from strangers. Wired ran an article on it recently and a quick Google search will… whatever…

    They made a flying house for whimsy, yet no one rode in it. Nobody on a couch watching tv or staring into the fridge wondering what to eat or reading a Chatelain magazine whilst pooping/masturbating? You know, house stuff.

    Guys, guys, guys. There is no inflection in text, let’s not pretend that there is.

    Yet another reason for sarcasm font.

  8. Loaf Loaf says:

    Lucy you have been misinformed – Next to hydrogen, Helium is the second most abundant element in the universe, and accounts for 24% of the elemental mass of our galaxy. We are not short on helium by any means….check your facts so you don’t sound like an idiot!

  9. Lucy says:

    Don’t they know we’re running out of helium?!

  10. A single helium balloon, the traditional rubber kind, can lift a payload of one gram.


  11. Tiffany Graham says:

    I wonder how they landed the house?

    Ya’ll do realize that it was National Geographic what started that thing about the stranded baby grand off Miami.
