Paddy Power plan to use the balloon at sporting events to offer competition winners a chance to view sporting events from ‘the best seats in the house’.

A spokesperson from Paddy Power comments, “We couldn’t resist inviting punters to get into our lucky pants at Cheltenham this year – so we needed a pair of epic proportions! Our flying y-fronts provide an unrivalled view of the action for punters, as well as hopefully giving anyone in the grandstand a sight to remember and a bit of Irish luck“.
