So I changed strategy. I started inflating some balloons and throwning them to the crowd. Everybody(!) loves this and people get very playful. After some time the balloon will be popped somewhere with a bang but nobody will care as it is expected.

So then I can start to blow pop some while standing in the crowd. Some people will think it happens by accident, others come over and grin "Well I saw you - this was on purpose!"

And after some experience with this (in the clubs people get used I am "The Balloon Guy") I entered stage and started blowing to pop amidst dancers there and in front of everybody. It is truly a bang! Try for yourself...


I like the idea of doing it in a club! As the music would offset some of the noise. Love the idea of being able to do more than one, I always figured doing a public b2p has to be a one off but now you mention it...

You should not underestimate the pop. I have expereince now from Techno/Goa over Rock to Pop/Trash Parties, music being very loud. Still you will hear a balloon go off as the pop sound is so much different from all surrounding noise.

Fun thing for me are reactions of people next to me. Hands held up to ears, tapping on my shoulder or even asking "Do you have to do that?" As for the last if it comes from a nice lady I give in, tie the balloon off and hand it over to her. Funnily enough always it will be bursted by her or friends some minutes later - while I am busy with my next b2p. Very common after big bang are laughs and some applause.

For anyone interested, I've created a playlist on my YouTube channel with videos made in Dutch and Belgium cities where men and women do public blow-to-pops as part of a city-tour event:

I've seen similar events during the introduction week for new students at universities.

Hi and welcome Mike! I really like the dance club idea too. The feeling of a girl coming up to me with a mischievous grin knowing that I "accidentally" popped a balloon on purpose sounds exciting. Now that I'm married I don't really see me going out and trying public popping in future, but that's of no complaint.

However I do remember when I was with my ex-gf, she loved to play with balloons in public. She was a actress by trade, so she just loved being seen public in general, which I believe made balloon play a natural transition for her. Playing and popping in the park was a pretty common thing, and it didn't bother me much because I figured that's where balloons would commonly be seen. A couple times however we'd be out in a mall or plaza and she'd sometimes out of the blue say, "hand me a balloon". Which was kinda exciting because of the spontaneity of it all, but in fact I'd be the one nervous about the balloon popping because I don't want to disturb anyone. One time we were in an indoor mall, and she and I were sitting down while she was blowing one up. She bopped around with all the playfulness in the world, and then she all of the sudden she just went, "I wanna pop this one". I asked, "what about the other people?" to which she just went, "who cares?". And then BANG! You could see that people were startled and trying to figure out where it came from, but it was pretty clear where it came from because it'd be followed up by intense giggling and laughing.

I did my second public b2p last night!

Out with my boyfriend for drinks, went into McDonalds afterwards... Saw some uninflated balloons behind the counter and asked for one. I wasn't eating so got bored... And while my boyfriend was eating I was messing around with the balloon then I just kept blowing this white McDonalds balloon up. BF knew what was coming so he was like "Oh God are you going to?". Yep

There were groups sat at a couple of surrounding tables that were watching me in the end, I do find it quite a thrill. It didn't go as big as I expected though, and then burst with a really loud bang and the room went silent for a couple of seconds.

I think my next one is going to be in the local mall I think the echo of the bang might be really good...
