"Oz The Great And Powerful" Promotional Balloon Fittingly Gets Swept Away In Central Park

The balloon only made it about 10 to 20 feet in the air before high winds crashed it into a fountain. A movie that features a hot air balloon going astray begets a promotional hot air balloon that goes astray.

Because it was too windy and the balloon was blown back into Central Park where it ripped.

The balloon I was supposed to go in had some wind trouble - came down on a Central Park fountain and ripped. http://t.co/ILVf6mccGa

I seriously have never seen a hot air balloon land on a fountain and rip...until just now.
