Paddy Power: Lucky PantsSpecial Builds

Punters at the Cheltenham Festival were treated to a surprise fly-by of a giant pair of green y-fronts floating above the racetrack.

The airship believed to be the world’s first pair of flying undergarments was modeled on bookmaker Paddy Power’s brand icon – ‘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 ten weeks to make.

The balloon has been used at sporting events to offer winners a chance to view sporting events from ‘the best seats in the house’.
