When Balloon Art Goes Very Wrong and Very PhallicThe Tetsuwan Dash is a long running Japanese series that features boy band (and former Xbox 360 spokesmen) Tokio. On the show, the group tries to pull off a variety of feats, like building a foam house or seeing who can last longest on the least amount of money—stuff like that.


This weekend's show had the group do balloon art, using enormous, handmade balloons. They were supposed to make a turtle balloon. Obviously this is a work in progress, but what they've got sure doesn't look like a turtle.

The shape wasn't lost on those making the balloon art, as evident by the above quote above (これの方がいいかも知れない), which means, "This might look better."
