A giant 250-pound red ball marauded its way through Toledo, Ohio, streets on Wednesday. The video surfaced today on social media and local Toledo news sites.
Part of a Toledo Museum of Art exhibit, the red ball broke loose when a thunderstorm and high winds pushed the ball away from its handlers.
“It started pouring rain, so the ball was wet and slippery,” Kelly Garrow, the museum’s Director of Communications told ABC News. “The wind picked up, and it popped up and just started going. You can see in the video that’s going viral that it rolled about halfway down a block and then mysteriously took a left-hand turn. It made its way partially down the street before people caught up with it.”
