What is the Balloon World Cup?
Like almost everything on the internet, everything starts with a viral. A video posted on social networks becomes viral, attracts Ibai’s attention, and he had no other idea than to promise that if he got an RT number he would commit to organizing a World Cup for that game. The game in question showed two young people hitting a balloon in turn preventing it from touching the ground, leading to really fun and frantic situations, as the players will push the balloon to take it to the most complicated place possible for their rival.
