Budweiser Blimp Found In New Brunswick (VIDEO, TWEETS)

Posted: Updated:

Pink Floyd, eat your heart out.

Transport Canada (TC) is trying to track down a runaway Budweiser blimp that's currently traversing the sky over New Brunswick, not unlike the inflatable pigs that have floated in the air at the rock band's concerts.

UPDATE: April 29 — The Budweiser blimp has been found in the woods northeast of Saint John, The National Post reported.

The red blimp, which is designed to look like a goal light that illuminates whenever a hockey team scores, broke from its tether at a Saint John ball hockey tournament on Saturday, said CBC News.

It was reported floating at an altitude of about 1,200 metres, with a maximum height of 1,500 metres and moving at a speed of up to six knots in a northeasterly direction.

TC expects the blimp to come down somewhere near Sussex, N.B.

The humour of the situation wasn't lost on Twitter.
