LeBron James Made Into Balloon Sculpture by BYU Student (VIDEO)

Michael Garcia - July 4, 2012

Remember how excited you would get as a kid when the balloon animal making person was at a birthday party, or maybe at the restaurant and they would whip up a bike, or a sword or wacky hat for you and you'd get all excited? Then it would pop five minutes later and the excitement turned to tears? Well, none of those people can hold a hand held air pump to BYU student Joel Zae.

It apparently took Joel his 'whole Saturday' to make this crazy good rendition of NBA Finals MVP LeBron James. Thankfully, the video isn't a full day long, but helpfully edited down to a more watchable two and a half minutes.

I don't know if BYU offers a major in balloon character design, but this guy is good. And just to be fair to those other balloon making folks, I'm sure the two or three minutes it takes to make you a cat is better than making you sit at a restaurant table for six hours waiting for your LeBron James.
