A Crazy Golf Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man

There's a Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man on one of the holes at The Clubhouse Stoke Crazy Golf course in Newcastle-Under-Lyme.


The 18-hole indoor minigolf course was the 925th we've visited and 527th played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour since September 2006. It was the first we've seen an Airdancer on.

Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man on the Isle of Wight

Windy Man Air Dancer spotted in Ryde on the Isle of Wight.

Our friends Karl and Sophia spotted a Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man during their holiday on the Isle of Wight and sent along a snap to add to my 'collection'!

I've only seen this type of Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man at ground level once before. That one was in Flimwell, while en route to Hastings for the World Crazy Golf Championships in 2012. The only other time I've seen the blue Air Dancer was above a shop on the seafront at Bridlington in 2015.

Inflatable advertising man at United Carpets and Beds

While driving out of the Borough for a weekend away in Hastings we spotted a great piece of inflatable advertising at United Carpets and Beds on Buxton Road in Hazel Grove, Stockport.

While the United Carpets and Beds inflatable is not of the wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube variety he is still attention grabbing

It's the second inflatable spotted since we moved to Stockport. Last Christmas I saw a Santa Claus wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man advertising the sale on at Terry's Fabrics in Cheadle Heath.

On our recent roadtrip we saw a couple of other interesting ways to advertise beds. Vic Smith Beds in Enfield is currently using a tank on his roadside advertising on the M25, while Sussex Beds in Bexhill is using a dinosaur outside their store to entice people in.

We've spotted a lot of inflatable advertising and wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube men on our travels over the years. Unfortunately I haven't had a need to hire or buy a wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man for my own marketing business. Not yet anyway...

Blackpool's Bingo Clown Inflatable

While in Blackpool we spotted another piece of inflatable advertising for the 'collection'...

A clown. And an inflatble piece of advertising 

Except for the fact it's not a wacky waving type of inflatable arm flailing tube man, this one has it all. A BIG clown advertising bingo at the seaside! Marvellous.

On our travels we've spotted quite a few airdancer advertising inflatables, ranging from the wacky waving ones, to more static characters and mascots.

We Sell Xmas Trees

Driving home from work the other evening I had to take a detour through Luton town centre and spotted a sight that brought a smile to my face. I knew I'd have to head back in the daylight to get a snap of me next to it! And so I did.

You can buy Christmas Trees at The Windmill pub on Gypsy Lane in Luton

Looking at my Facebook Year in Review 99.9% of the photos show me next to, on, or inside something ridiculous! Long may it continue.

An Advertising Airdancer Not Dancing in Boscombe

Another in the long line of sort of Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-men to add to my 'collection'.

The latest in the long line of Airdancers spotted on my travels was advertising payday loans at the Cash Converters in Boscombe, Dorset. It was lurching a fair bit when we first spotted it.

The following day it was a bit more upright, but needn't a bit more air.

A Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man in Stretford

Another Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man added to my ‘collection’ in Manchester!
 
While in Manchester to play the Chrizy Golf course and various other shenanigans at the weekend I was driving from Old Trafford to the Trafford Centre via Stretford in Manchester when I spotted a Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man outside Gleave Tool Centre on Chester Road!

Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-men (or Airdancers to give them their technical name) are often used to help businesses in their advertising (as well as a few other things if you believe Family Guy's Al Harrington).

Once again the Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man did its job in raising awareness of Gleave Tool Centre (founded in 1833 when it traded as "Wooden Plane Manufacturers and Dealers of Tools and Sheffield Cutlery"!).

A Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-man in Flimwell

While travelling to Hastings, East Sussex last Thursday ahead of the 2012 'Castle Golf' World Crazy Golf Championship we travelled through Flimwell and at the cross roads on Hawkhurst Road I spotted a Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-man!!!

I had to turn the car round to have a photo taken with them to add to my 'collection'. What was great that there wasn't just one of them outside the Country Furniture Barns, but two of them! And even better than that, they were double-sided!
The second Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-man outside the Country Furniture Barn in Flimwell. This one was by the car park.
The point of Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-men (or Airdancers to give them their technical name) are there to help advertise businesses (as well as a few other things if you believe Family Guy's Al Harrington).

It certainly worked as we popped into the Country Furniture Bar shop for a browse and would recommend it for a visit as there were some nice home, kitchen & garden furnishings and decorations.

A Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-man at the Warwick Hilton

Many thanks to Trevor ‘Lord of Smeeth’ Robertson for sending me this snap of a Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-man, or as he calls it a “windy man”, for my ‘collection’!

It was spotted at the Hilton Hotel in Warwick.

Two and a Half Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-Men

Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-Men spotted in Bangkok (and Worcester).

It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen any Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-Men on my travels. However, Emily being the world traveller that she is, has spotted two (and a half’ish) of them over in Bangkok, Thailand.

The first ones, that aren’t really the fun type of Airdancers made ‘famous’ by Al Harrington, were spotted outside the Times Square shopping plaza on Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok.

The second lot were ‘real’ Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-Men and Emily spotted them attacking passers-by as she travelled in a taxi in Bangkok! I'm not sure what they were advertising though.

Last week I re-visited Guildford, Surrey but didn’t spot a Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-Man like I did on my first visit to the town.

Two More Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-men Spotted - Luton & Mill Hill

Recently I've spotted two Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-men on my travels. The first was a Funfair one at Luton's Manor Park (previously spotted at the Luton Wardown Park Funfair). The other was advertising a Car Wash near Mill Hill Broadway Train Station.

Another not so Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-man in Dunstable


Over the road from the not so Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-man advertising a Car Wash in Dunstable there is now another not so Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-man advertising an ATS Euromaster Car Brake Centre! This one is different, but the old one that was over the road has gone.

The technical name for Wacky Waving Arm-Flailing Inflatable Tube-men is "Airdancer".

I've also seen you can buy a Game called Pumpaloons! It looks to be a home-based contest version of Airdancers!!!
