Disney’s “Oz The Great And Powerful” movie hits theaters on March 8, 2013. In order to promote the movie Walt Disney Pictures had commissioned a giant hot air balloon to be built, and the balloon has been on a whirlwind promotional tour across the country since the “Oz The Great And Powerful” movie premiere in Los Angeles, California on February 13, 2013.
Sadly the hot air balloon’s journey has come to an end though as during its trip through Central Park in New York City it was blown by a gust of wind and flew into a fountain, where it ripped.
ABC’s “Good Morning America” host Sam Champion was reportedly in the basket when it landed in the fountain, but he was not injured. We’re glad he’s okay!
