A Rammstein Blimp Is Flying Over Los Angeles

There’s tour promo, and then there’s tour promo, and then there’s a blimp.

In the promo materials for their recently-announced North American tour, industrial metallers Rammstein have included several images of a blimp bearing their logo, floating over the venues in question. This originally looked like a piece of referential promotion, equal parts Led Zeppelin and the Hindenburg. But now, it appears that Rammstein are deadly serious about their airship game, as a Rammstein blimp has been sighted over Los Angeles.

Footage of the blimp was caught by our friends over at MetalSucks, who posted footage to their Instagram:

While several other fans have posted video footage and images to social media:

We can only hope that the blimp will make its way around various cities in America. That said, this is pretty sweet across the board.
