Pilot mistake means pingpong balls rain on highway
A pilot who dropped 3,000 pingpong balls that were redeemable for prizes missed a crowd assembled for the stunt and instead hit a nearby interstate.Man, that had to have been one crazy commute, no? All of a sudden your car is getting pelted by hail the size of ping pong ba- WAIT! Those really ARE ping pong balls!
Organizers immediately called off the contest. Aaron Moon and helpers on Saturday told revelers at Blackfoot Pride Days not to risk retrieving the pingpong balls amid high-speed traffic because organizes still planned to pass out the prizes.
I'm guessing that, due to the light weight, there was little-to-no-damage done to the cars, except perhaps for folks that panicked. It's funny that the pilot didn't factor gravity into his assessment. He apparently thought that ping pong balls had some inherent glide capability.
At least the ping pong balls didn't hit the ground like wet sacks of cement...
That is all.
