This might be as old as dirt, but we recently came across this gem titled ‘Billy’s Balloon’ by Don Hertzfeldt that will alter the way you think of balloons forever. Watch as poor Billy is tormented by his sadistic balloon. It’s so messed up it’s comical.

Billy’s Balloon should have been called “Attack of the Killer Balloons” or “Army of Alien Killer Balloons”!

Sick! Sick! Sick! Clever, strange, bizarre, and oddly, funny.

And what about the balloon acting, well, like a balloon when adults pass by. Are we sure there isn’t a little kid bully inside these balloons!?
