Craigslist is widely regarded as the classified’s of the internet. There is no limit to what kind of strange, bizarre requests, stories, or items for sale you might find.
This is pretty strange though, even for Craigslist.
Somewhere in Philadelphia, there is a ballon-animal genius who made a life-size balloon sculpture of 76ers center Joel Embiid. As a reminder, Embiid stands an astounding 7-feet tall. So if you have high ceilings, a lot of space in your room, and want everyone to be creeped out and know you’re a big Joel Embiid fan, all at the same time, this is the offer of your dreams.
I don’t know how or why but I am some sort of balloon prodigy, I can make literally anything out of balloons. Ridiculous giant balloon sculptures are great for parties, as a gift or just to leave on someone’s porch as a weird and confusing joke. I left a 5 foot T. rex in the first unlocked car I could find and I still laugh about it every day. I can deliver most sculptures by car but large structures like a castle or working balloon pub would need to be finished on site.
The ad states that the person who made this is able to make anything out of balloons, but expresses boredom with the medium, and is therefore looking to move on. What are they looking for in exchange for the sculpture? Not cash, or a new phone, or a gaming console. Instead they’re looking for “…tools/lumber etc.”
Apparently the creator of the balloon Embiid is ready to move on to more serious forms of construction.
