Laughter, One Balloon Hat at a Time

Addi Somekh realized he could make people laugh at the age of 19 when he became a balloon twister. He travels around the world giving people balloon hats and documenting people’s reactions through photos.

“There are some things that connect all human beings…laughter being one of those things…laughter sounds the same in every language.”

Check out Addi’s video, Balloon Hat Experience, and his website, The Varieties of the Balloon Hat Experience.
