A Gigantic Rubber Duck Floated Through London’s Financial District Today

A 50 foot-tall rubber duck floated through London’s financial district today to celebrate the launch of a Jackpotjoy.com’s Facebook FUNdation, an initiative granting funds and rewards for wacky ideas to encourage the British to laugh more.

The Daily Mail reports that a team of eight people spent more than 800 man-hours cutting and welding together the parts of the duck to make sure it was airtight before it began its swim.
