The internet is already a weird place before. And today, it got a bit more weirder.
Everyone loves Joel Embiid. This Philadelphia 76ers fan, who is looking to trade a life-size Joel Embiid balloon animal for tools and lumber on Craiglist. Maybe he loves him a little too much.
Take a look at his masterpiece.

Impressive. I mean look at that detail — the thing actually kinda looks like Embiid.
Let’s do a side-by-side comparison:
I can almost not tell the difference.
However — the actual balloon sculpture isn’t even as strange as the ad selling it on Craigslist:
I don’t know how or why but I am some sort of balloon prodigy. I can make literally anything out of balloons. Ridiculous giant balloon sculptures are great for parties, as a gift or just to leave on someone’s porch as a weird and confusing joke. I left a 5 foot T. rex in the first unlocked car I could find and I still laugh about it every day. I can deliver most sculptures by car but large structures like a castle or working balloon pub would need to be finished on site.
Lifesized balloon sculptures take all day to make and can run into the thousands of dollars from party companies most of whom don’t offer anything so customizable to begin with. I am looking to trade for tools. I got bored with balloons and am moving on to make things out of wood. I am especially interested in:
A better miter gauge for my table saw
Router bits or accessories
I can also always use building materials and useful things to keep my shop running well or just anything very interesting. I am not looking for money, some people actually do this for a career and I don’t want to take a paying job from them.
That’s right, folks! For the low, low price of a few power tools or some spare lumber, you can own this amazing Joel Embiid balloon sculpture.
Maybe the Sixers themselves will put in a bid on it because, ya know, two Embiids are better than one.
