3,000 Ping Pong Balls Accidentally Rain onto a Highway

Jul 15, 2014

As video of hail the size of golf balls pelting a Siberian beach goes viral, 3,000 ping pong balls have pelted a highway in Idaho, the Associated Press reports via the Idaho State Journal.

A pilot was supposed to drop them over a crowd, but accidentally missed.

The ping pong balls were supposed to be redeemable for candy and $100 gift cards during an event called Blackfoot Pride Days, a periodic celebration of local pride.

The good news is that prizes were reportedly passed out anyway despite the mishap.
