Brigham Young University student Joel Zae took a day to create a balloon sculpture of one of the NBA’s most talented players, Miami Heat’s LeBron James. Seen on YouTube and edited with video time lapse, the six-hour project is condensed down to 2 minutes, including a pizza break.

At the end, he suspends his air James from the ceiling in a windmill slam dunk pose. As of Tuesday, the video had around 700 views, but that number could inflate dramatically if the video goes viral.
