Video: Mitt Romney Blimp Forced to Make Emergency Landing

| by Michael Allen

A blimp promoting Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign had to make an emergency landing just north of Miami, Florida on Sunday.

The blimp, which advertised the banner 'America Needs Romney,' was caught in high winds and forced to the ground near a residential area in Davie, Florida, reports WSVN-TV (video below).

Davie Police Department Captain Dale Engle told WPLG-TV: “He came down tail first and then the gondola struck and then rolled to its side and deflated. It may not be breezy here on the ground, but when you get [to] 1000 feet, which this thing does operate at, I think the current is a lot different.”

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

It's unclear if the blimp was chartered by the Romney campaign or by one of the groups that support him, reports the Miami Herald.
