Sonic The Balloon Mark II Takes Flight!

Following our story yesterday we’ve received another tip to actual video footage of the Sonic Macy’s Day balloon taking it’s maiden test flight, with fellow newcomers Julius the Sock Monkey and the AFLAC Duck (AFLAC is a US/Japanese insurance company for those that don’t know).

Apart from test-walking it was a great chance for the organisers to climb up a ladder and try to look important apparently. Check out the news story below, now available on the Sonic Wrecks YouTube channel.

[Thanks again to SSF1991 for the tip via Twitter.]
