Balloonist Jeff Wright created an Iron Man suit using 500 balloons to commemorate the early digital release of "Iron Man 3" on Blinkbox.

Wright, who works as a volunteer in an orphanage in Bolivia, became a viral sensation after creating life-size Buzz Lightyear and a Ninja Turtle costumes from balloons.

"I was trying to decide what costume to do next when I got an email from Blinkbox," he said. "I'm a huge fan of the Iron Man films and couldn't resist the challenge. After some careful planning I was ready and asked a friend to film the whole process right here in Bolivia."
