Giant Inflatable Cucumber Gets Into a Bit of a Pickle on Sydney Harbour

Excitement over a promotional stunt for Hendrick’s Gin soon fizzled out when a giant cucumber travelling across Sydney Harbour in the name of the brand suddenly toppled off its mooring and burst open.In this video, filmed by a local woman, Vanessa Chapman-Steer, and shared to LinkedIn, workers in a nearby building can be heard marvelling at the large inflated cucumber, a popular garnish used in gin drinks. However, the thrill doesn’t last long.Soon enough, the giant vegetable rips open and deflates into the water, triggering hysterical laughter from onlookers.“Working in picturesque #barangaroo you have the benefit of panoramic #Sydney harbour views. Today, we were surprised to watch the worlds largest cucumber curteousy [sic] of #hendriksgin floating on the harbour. And we were treated to this hilarious promo disaster,” Chapman-Steer said in a post alongside the video. Credit: Vanessa Chapman-Steer via Storyful
