Stephen Colbert’s Head Goes Into Space

The folks at Makerbot made a bust of Stephen Colbert and gave him a copy when they appeared on his show a month or so ago. Not content to let it just moulder in the shop, they decided to attach it to a weather balloon and send it up over Long Island. The resulting video and images are striking: the Great Eagle himself in flight high over the salty waves of the Atlantic, overtopping the great spires of American Democracy, and soaring unfettered like a plastic bag in American Beauty.

Watch the video to see the eagle soar. Thor bless small plastic busts of comedic actors playing conservative pundits and Thor bless the US of A.
