Impressively unique hot-air balloons
Fly in style
Taking a hot-air balloon ride is an activity that frequents people's bucket lists, and for good reason. It's an incredible marvel to be hoisted up using a basic scientific principle of heat and air, and the views are unparalleled.
But after a while, the balloons lose their novelty, with each looking exactly the same. That's why artists started bending the traditional design.
In what seems to be a competition to see who can create the most outrageous shape that can still take to the sky, there have been some tremendous results.
From well-known characters to some head-scratching figures, check out this gallery to see some of the world's weirdest and most wonderful hot-air balloons.
