'The Unpoppables' PremiereTLC premiered a new series tapping into what we'll wager is a largely unknown business market. 'The Unpoppables' (Mon., 8PM ET on TLC) follows the staff at New Balloon Art, who take that concept to unheard of heights.

When we consider balloon art, most of us probably think of the cute dogs or swords you can get from a clown at a carnival, but how about a life-size sculpture made from hundreds of thousands of balloons?

For the premiere, the client event was a firemen's gathering. Inspiration was to recreate their livelihood.

The result was a truly impressive life-size sculpture of a fire truck, complete with working lights. Attached was a hose leading to a fireman who was spraying balloon water on a balloon fire. The attention to detail was staggering and the response was much the same.

"It's amazing. I've never seen anything like it."

"That is incredible."

"When I first heard about [it] I thought, that's impossible, so it's a very impressive thing."

The creators were nervous before the big reveal, but they clearly had nothing to worry about. Their work is nothing short of creative brilliance. That it's made entirely of balloons just makes it that much more fun and impressive.
