Punters at the Cheltenham Festival were today treated to a surprise unveiling of a giant pair of flying, green Y-Fronts.

Perhaps unsurprinsigly believed to be the world’s first pair of flying undergarments the balloon was modeled on bookmaker Paddy Power’s ‘lucky pants’.

Using over 3,600 square feet of material and boasting a 2,260 inch waist band, the unique craft took a team of top engineers six months to make.

Paddy Power plan to use the balloon at sporting events to offer competition winners a chance to view sporting events from ‘the best seats in the house’.
