Fly A Hot Air Balloon on Google Maps

Ad agency Biborg has created an award winning banner ad game for YouTube, using Google Maps and HTML5. Envolez-vous! allows users to fly a hot air balloon around the world on Google Maps.

When you first load the map you can share your location to fly the balloon over your own home with Google Maps satellite view. The game includes some quick links to famous locations in France so you can quickly fly your balloon to the Eiffel Tower, Versailles and other interesting locations in France.

Hi anonymous,

This works for me in FireFox and Chrome.

In Internet Explorer the application doesn't seem to work - but you still should see the YouTube page with a replacement ad telling you to try Google Chrome :)
