Andrew Huang proves that there's no perfect way to cover Nena's "99 Red Balloons" than with actual red balloons.
The Toronto native uploaded a unique cover of the 1980s hit which just goes to show that he's undoubtedly one of the most creative artists of our time.
The balloons impressively mimic several different instruments in the song and for authenticity, they are red, but it case you're wondering, 99 balloons weren’t actually used--as Huang explains in the video’s description, “…it worked with 4 so mehhh.” With some clever editing, Huang created the bass, percussion, and melody by thumping, scrunching, plucking, and squeezing the balloons.
It probably took him forever to splice up the clips but it all paid off. It's incredible.
