Giant Rubber Duck takes Osaka

Have you seen a giant yellow 10 metre tall floating and inflatable rubber duck in your waters?  If you were in Osaka, Japan from August to September this year, you would have definitely seen one floating about in the river in Osaka.  The Rubber Duck Project 2009 was a part of the larger Aqua Metropolis Osaka celebrations this year and Nederland in Japan promotion.

It’s not the first time the duck has been seen in the world, but it is the first visit to Japan.  The Rubber Duck is the brainchild of Dutchman, Florentijn Hofman.

Any votes for bringing the duck to Vancouver?  I’ve got two hands up.
