Tiji TV Balloon in Space

French childrens television channel Tiji TV has launched a marvellous advertising campaign celebrating the imagination of children. In this spot, a face-shaped helium-filled balloon embarks on an epic journey into the sky and beyond.

Astronaut in Tiji Balloon TV ad

A red helium filled balloon with eyes narrowly escapes being burst by a weather cock before launching into the sky to fly with the birds, hang out with a hot air balloon, call in on a mountaineering expedition, flirt with the Yetis. The journey takes the balloon through air traffic, past an astronaut and beyond. The ad finishes with the creator of this fantasy, the girl who lost her balloon.
