It starts with a helium-filled balloon attached to a string.
Little by little, you tear the string into small pieces.
Bunch the little pieces into a ball and attach the ball to the string of the balloon.
A magical pass, and the balloon begins to rise in the air. As it does, the string gets longer and longer, until it is fully restored.

I'd like to see it without the edits personally but it is a nice idea.

Nice. I love the new presentation. I haven't touched gypsy thread yet. Easy to handle? Thread quality? Thanks!

I forgot to mention, I charge 8 bucks for looking up song titles. I'll shoot you a Paypal invoice, Cody.

This is a great idea on a classic. The only draw back is having to stop off at the party store and get a helium balloon for each show.

My thinking on this is to go to Target and pick up one of those little portable helium tanks for $19. Never have to take it out of my trunk. Just go to my car and fill a balloon before every show. Don't know how much it cost to get a balloon inflated at a party store, or how easy they are to find one all the time, but for $19 for a small tank in the back of my car, that seems more convenient.

Anyone know about temperatures and helium tanks?

Can you fill up balloons from your car in the middle of summer or winter? (in Chicago)

Great Effect.

I see a lot of potential for my Stage & Motivational Speaking shows.

Only would like to know if the set up is easy in order to be able to perform it at mid show.

Cheers!
