Aero - Feel the bubbles advert with the pro-skater amongst the bubbles (they look like they are balloons but may be cgi effects, not 100% sure...).
Gun Wharf Keys - has a chap who makes animals from balloons

Just done some more research on the areo advert and found the following information....
 
The 60-second spot, 'Feel the Bubbles', features the trickery of Bob Burnquist, a vertical ramp specialist and winner of countless X-Games.  It is also directed by Ty Evans, a man widely recognised and celebrated as the best skateboarding cinematographer in the industry. Shot at the 40,000 square foot Lake Cunningham Skate Park in San Jose, California, the advert features 50,000 balloons that were blown up by 12 people over four full days. Each balloon was then placed in the skate park, to create a bubble filled environment.  
 
Good job this is a TV advert..... 50,000 balloons in one place would be a nightmare! Don't fancy my chances.... I feel sorry for the four people whose job was to blow the balloons up...

Phones for U have balloons inside and outside of their shops at the moment - what is it with phone compaines and their obsession with balloons for advertising?!!

Thanks for that Tamsin my hubby was trying to talk me going to Ikea tomorrow so will probably give it a miss. I hate going to that kind of place anyhow.
I was out in town with my daughter yesterday and saw balloons in Boots advertising no 7, and in Frasers well outside up high really large balloons the size of bouncing balls I think they used to be called. I don't know what they were trying to advertise as they had no writing on them from what I could see. I also saw balloons in the windows of clinton cards.
 
I tend to steer clear of shopping centres but as I say I was out with my daughter.

Ikea is always best avoided on a Sunday so think you are right to give it a miss Teddy  Grin
 
I also went in Clinton cards yesterday (without Sophie!) and their store was completely full of pink latex balloons  Angry

Hi Karen
 
Hope this finds you and Sophie well. I didn't go into any of those shops but I could see the balloons. Also today I was out with hubby and it was just a little shop to get bird seed etc to feed my birds and squirrels and the rest of the garden animals and the little shop was covered in balloons. Good job I sent hubby in.  
 
It seems they are all around us and getting worse instead of lessening off.
 
Love to Sophie Grin

Hi Teddy,

You are right about the balloons seeming to get worse.  Glad you had someone with you when you got the bird seed etc. poor you, always having to stay outisde the shops.  At least I can go in these shops when Sophie is not with me but I still HATE being near them.
 
Take care,

Balloons everywhere in our town today.
 
A new Shoe Zone has opened and there were bright orange balloons all over the place  Angry  In fact it was like an obstacle course and we were dodging ballons constantly from other stores as well but not sure which as didn't hang around to see where they were from  Shocked
 
It sure seems to be getting worse especially on a Saturday.

Hi Karen and everyone on forum
 
We were over at my Mum's the other day and went to local TK Maxx in Linwood and as we drove there we noticed balloons all over the garages there selling cars.
 
What is it with balloons do the manufacturers really think that a tacky cheap and nasty penny balloon will make someone buy there products whether it be from an item from boots no 7 right up to advertising cars that cost 30,000+
 
Don't you think there is a sad 'BALLOON MENTALITY' out there and we need to try to do something more positive to get our voices heard. Like I say I just wish I had more time on my hands at the moment but I don't.  
 
Just wonder if anyone at LASG itself can do anything to get some publicity about the dangers of balloons and be writing to parliament and all our MP's asking for balloons to be banned in public places due to health and safety issues. Just a thought.
 
I think we need good media coverage about balloons on as many programmes that would listen including local TV stations.
 
Something like Hayley I would like to get deeper in to if I just had the time to do it.
 
Moan over for this morning
