If anyone was going to try and propel their dog into the atmosphere using helium enclosed in plastic, it was inevitably going to be Jenna Marbles. In her brand new video, of which we can now all come to expect a certain degree of f*ckery, Jenna is seen tying together a mass of 72 balloons to see if it can launch her dog into the air… and goddamnit, it worked.
The venture into space wasn’t immediately easy for Marbles and his astronautical career however, as Jenna and Julien had to make six different trips to Party City to purchase enough balloons to lift a 5lb dumbbell off the ground – because they weren’t gonna test it on Marbles straight away! But, four hours later, Jenna’s dream comes true as she gets to watch Marbles take his first flight into space (or just the ceiling of her living room).
You can see the 72 balloons vs Marbles challenge below!
Whilst the hilarity of seeing an 8-year-old chihuahua being air lifted off the floor by dozens of birthday balloons is enough to tickle anyone pink, the real magic happened when Marbles actually fell asleep up there. All snuggled up in his sling and harnessed in for safety, he closes his eyes and continues to “not give a f*ck” about his barking brother on the ground. Honestly who wouldn’t wanna escape from your family for a lil’ nap though?
Eventually Marbles is let back down and he joins the rest of his family again, but not after Jenna realises that she now has to deal with the whole 72 balloons in your house situation; “Welcome to our new living room, it consists only of birthday balloons… what a f*cking mistake this was”.
God bless you Mr Marbles; may your future be ever full of Party City birthday balloons.
