VIBES: World’s Raddest Dad?

Everyone Carries Something - For children, that probably means hauling around their favorite toys along with their endless imagination.

Prepare to file this video into the “totally heart-warming” folder as a man named Ron Fugelseth sends “his 4-year-old son’s favorite toy train ‘Stanley’ to space in a weather balloon” using a self-rigged set up.

Stanley’s adventure over an hour as he traveled 18 miles upward into the statosphere. Talk about a view! The experiement was documented with an HD camera, tracked with an old cellphone with GPS and then animated afterwards with After Effects and Photoshop to “bring Stanley to life” as Ron’s son sees him.

Too good.
