This Inflatable Bouncy Castle Is Shaped Like Stonehenge [VIDEO]

And Now For Something Completely Different

Last night we showed you a video of Batman at a birthday party, but for those children who prefer mysterious, prehistoric stone monuments over superheroes, have we got the rentable item for you. INFLATABLE BOUNCY CASTLE STONEHENGE! Sorry, I felt like it needed that sort of loud introduction. This inflatable Stonehenge is actually an art instillation by Jeremy Deller called Sacrilege. It’s been set up as part of the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art. “Situated on Glasgow Green, Sacrilege was revealed as a full-scale, inflatable replica of Stonehenge, one of the UK’s most recognisable heritage sites,” it says in the video’s description. The ambitious new sculptural installation in the form of a magnificent bouncy castle is characteristic of Deller’s on-going exploration of contemporary culture and continues the Festival’s commitment to presenting engaging works in the public realm.” In June, inflatable Stonehenge will start making the rounds around the UK before winding up at London’s CREATE festival.
