Giant Rubber Duck deflates in Hong Kong!


The world touring giant rubber duck (currently  in Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour) has been causing quite a stir since it was installed two weeks ago by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman in the skyscraper-ringed port. Chinese factories say sales of rubber ducks have soared, nearby hotels are advertising rooms that have great “duck views,” and yellow cakes shaped like ducks have been selling like, well, hotcakes. Hong Kong is the latest port of call for the duck. It’s previously taken up temporary residence in cities all over the world, including Osaka, Sydney, Sao Paolo and Amsterdam.


But the city’s beloved installation deflated overnight on Tuesday to something that looked more like a deflated beach ball! Rumors were ‘flying’ about why it happened….did the duck have the ‘avian flu?’ Harbour City, which helped organize the exhibition, tweeted at the public to stay tuned, explaining that the duck was just sleeping.
