Oh boy! We were quite let down by this one. The pteranodon balloon is one of the first WTFs we bought in our huge WTF Korea stash. We’ve been putting it off for a special day. We imagined ourselves going to the park, filling this bad boy up with some straw-up-the-butt air (similar to the Party Booms we did a while ago), throwing it in the air, and then chasing it around, giggling, laughing out loud, and reclaiming our lost innocence from childhood. Oh! We had such high hopes for this guy right here…and he totally let us down.
The Pteranodon balloon is nothing more than a bag full of air. You throw it and it drops. That’s all. There’s nothing aerodynamic about it. The air doesn’t seep out the back like rocket fuel. It just passes through like a silent fart. ARGH! And we tried it so many times! It just wouldn’t work. There’s not even anything that we can say about this that’s culturally informative. Not like Korea’s mascot is the pteranodon, or that balloons like this are common. This was just a toy that we’ve never seen before that we thought would be lots of fun, and we got our hopes crushed! Boo-urns!
This wasn’t all a waste of time, though: we’re having another monthly giveaway contest! Huzzah! This time we’re giving away the Ajumma Solar Visors, the Training Chopsticks, and the Japanese Instant Boobs! And we all know that the Instant Boobs are really the hot ticket here. And so, if you want to win these three things (along with the lame pteranodon balloon), all you have to do is tell us what you would do with the Instant Boobs (apart from picking up guys). Whatever response makes us laugh the most will win!
Also, we mentioned that the contest is for our YouTube subscribers only, which is true, and that you can enter by leaving your answers in the comments to the video, which we didn’t expand upon enough. You can leave your votes over at YouTube, or you can leave them here. Woohoo! Double the chances of winning some Japan Instant Boobs! Good luck!
