You want proof it's a blimp? I give you the ultimate proof.
Hannard says it's not a blimp

My money is on Human Alien eventually winning the battle, by sheer determinedness.
Phage keeps on hitting you down, but you just get back up.
I hope you don't find this offensive HA, but you remind me of this:
If you're not sure what that means Phage, I have a special diagram for you:
As for the thread topic, the video is very interesting (especially with the slow-mo version). It certainly doesn't look like your everyday blimp, the shape seems different. Does anybody have a pic of the goodyear blimp in London? It would be interesting to see its shape compared to the shape in the OP.
The Goodyear Blimp has recently undergone a quick costume change and will be gracing the skies once again as it provides aerial coverage of the London Olympic Games 2012.
We’re very excited and honoured to be providing a bird’s eye view of this phenomenal sporting event. As Goodyear is not an official sponsor of the Olympics, the blimp will fly unbranded for the duration of the Games.
