Yawn. Dudes Fill Levi's With Helium and Float


Following the questionably-real video of a guy back flipping into a pair of Levi's, a new, definitely not real video has a guy with his pants filled with helium float off into the air. OK. A.) Ever try to see how many helium-filled balloons you'd need to get yoursself off the ground? Exactly, you gave up after 100 which wouldn't even launch your dog. B.) Curiously, the guys is always floating in the same position...as if hung buy a wire that was later digitally removed. Not at all like the people you see floating around in space or on dive planes.

OK, it's fun but this is just dumb. Some poor low IQ idiot is going to try this at home and kill themselves thinking they can jump off their roof with a bit of helium in their pants. Law suits will ensue. Levi's will apologize. And American stupidity will continue to reign supreme.

Regardless of whether it's real or not, it's a craptacular commercial. It doesn't make me want to buy jeans and/or fill them with helium.

And the line "that was awesome!" emphatically stated after the dude fell 20 feet and got up without a scratch just makes him seem like a complete and utter douchebag.
