In a video, the giant balloon towers over cars and trees as it cruises down the road. It's not clear how, or if, the two guys chasing the moon in the video managed to get it back.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

In a video, the giant balloon towers over cars and trees as it cruises down the road. It's not clear how or if the two guys chasing the moon in the video managed to get it back, but it certainly looks like lunacy. It's MORNING EDITION.
