Watch Tolkien fan build a hobbit hole with 2,600 BALLOONS

Balloon animals—they're pretty cool as far as stuff you usually get from a clown goes. Imagine, though, a dwelling of some kind, completely constructed out of balloons. Now imagine it's Bag End—because that's a thing that actually happened!

Jeremy Telford, who apparently goes by the title "The Balloon Guy," took an ordinary, bare-bones living room, and then went Hobbit-wild on the place. In 40 hours, with 2,600 balloons, Jeremy put together a straight-up Hobbit paradise the likes of which Peter Jackson would covet.

We've got the video here that chronicles this weekend-long event. Marvel at his process, his craftsmanship, and the fact that he didn't die of an asthma attack in the process. Oh, and make sure you stick around for a little Tolkien narration afterward, followed by the tiniest demolitions experts you'll ever see.
