No blue Pikmin were harmed in this publicity stunt
Did you know that Nintendo of Canada constructed a Winged Pink Pikmin for Red Bull's Flugtag event in Ottawa-Gatineau, Canada this year? No? Well now you do — and what's more, you can view the flight trajectory of said Pikmin in the video below.
Needless to say, the real-world version didn't fly quite as well as the Pikmin 3 character which inspired it, but at least Nintendo of Canada had the foresight to have Blue Pikmin doing the pushing — they're invulnerable to water. Phew!
