There was an Academy award winning film that was made during our childhood that we all hold near and dear to our heart. The name of this movie was Heavyweights and it changed the lives of every overweight kid out there. Alright, it didn’t actually win any awards but it was an awesome film that showed how the big boys could have fun. They had an incredible toy that sat out in the middle of a pond and it was called The Blog that would launch each other 40 to 50 feet up in the air. We always wished we could get one but realized there was no way we could afford that (heck, we couldn’t afford a Icee in fifth grade) but now Hammacher has brought us the Body Launching Inflatable which is the exact idea of The Blob.
The Body Launching Inflatable can launch people as high you can launch somebody. We can’t recommend that you should double or triple up on the amount of people you drop to launch a person but if you did, you might get some serious air time. But we wouldn’t recommend it or anything because that would be irresponsible of Gadgets 4 Guys. The Gadgets 4 Guys office all grew up going down to the Lake of the Ozarks and quickly realized at one glance our lives down there would have been more complete with one of these. If you have easy access to a large amount of water that was deep enough to prevent anybody from cracking their heads open, the Body Launching Inflatable could make your days a lot more fun. It isn’t cheap but the material needs to be pretty strong in order to prevent your tubby friends from popping it before they send you into oblivion.
If you hang out at the lake during the summer time this is the man toy you need for 2013. Click here for image source and where to buy.
