We’ll forgive you for mistaking Jonathan Trappe for Carl Fredriksen of the Pixar movie UP. Like Fredriksen, Trappe is a “cluster balloonist” who likes to fly around the world with a bunch of balloons. He’s attempting to cross the Atlantic Ocean soon. To promote his upcoming trip, Trappe teamed up with Casasyes to make another real life version of the Up House for the Leon International Balloon festival in Mexico. Yes, a house that actually flies with balloons. Though we saw National Geographic already pull off that stunt, it always brings a smile to my soul when we’re recreating Pixar movies.
