Big Ball of Paint…and a geocache too!


Hey, I’m Londonwesty. -And I’m Lyriclass and this is Cache Canada. We’re here in the middle of nowhere Indiana to
do. -The Big Ball of Paint. -Wahoo! Hello! Hello. How are you? -Just fine.
-Wow. -We wanted to visit this for so long. -Really. -We’ve been close many times. [Loon calls] [Loon calls] There’s twenty six thousand, seven hundred and eleven layers painted so far. -Wow! -I’m gonna let you guys paint the next layer. So that will be number twelve. That’ll be number twenty six thousand, seven hundred and twelve. Wow! And we know for sure, we know for a fact that it weights over six thousand pounds. So, we think it weighs six
thousand five hundred pounds. I haven’t been able to weight it for a year and a half. When my son was three, there’s number one layer on this same ball. We’ve been painting it for 42 years. That same ball. -He’s got the Joker’s colours. It’s almost like a green and purple. -So when was the last coat of paint put on? -Just a couple of hours ago. -Yea, it seems tacky. -Yea a little tacky. -Neat. Since 2013 that’s when we started letting people right on it. -You’ve been on CBS Sunday
morning? -Yeah. Jimmy Kimmel, was he here? -No, by satellite. -Oh by satellite. Oh, cool. -And here’s the 2018 World Record of Guinness’. -Yeah. -And there it is. -Oh, nice. How many layers between this and that? -Boy, I don’t know. Let’s see.
Twenty five thousand five hundred six. This is what’s inside there.
-Yeah. -Let’s a compare the size. -Okay you put it on a. -Compare the size. -Is there anybody famous that signed the wall? -Ah, the Oakridge Boys, down here. -Oh, Yeah! -And Tom Green. -Oh yeah. -And Bill Geist, from CBS
Sunday Morning. Have you ever heard of the Gaither’s? There’re local. Neat, oh, look at that! -Can we use more than one colour? -Sure. -Okay. How do you want to do it? What colour do you want to use? -Oh, can you do that? I thought you just painted it one colour. -I usually do but for you guys. -Oh, that would be awesome! -Purple. I like the purple, you pick a colour. -Uhm. I’ll go with the teal. -Good. – Do you want to paint it like wedges? -I was thinking half and half. Yeah, we could do that. -But we could do like a orange, purple and
then teal and purple and
then teal. -We could try that. -The roller’s yours, right now. -Great! -It’s our ball. Ooo! This is awesome. This is cool. -I cut pieces off and I got you guys one. -Very nice. -Oh, thank you. Look at that! It almost looks like a heart. -Look at that. We got a core sample or a
little sliver of the ball. -Yeah. -Right there. Isn’t that neat! -Look at all the colours. -That’s awesome! -We have to figure out how many colours are there.
-Yeah. It’s like tree rings. You can count them. There’s February,
there’s March, April, June. [chuckles] It was really awesome to come here to the Big Ball of
Paint. I’ve been looking forward to this for so long! This is so cool! And I think
Lyriclass just had a ball! -Ha ha, your so funny! [laughter] -You said this is 42 years old. -42 years old January 1st.
On January 1st it will be 43 years. -Nice. And somebody’s coming at 5:30 to erase our beautiful art work. -Yeah. -Darn it all. -But, we were the last painters of the biggest ball for a little while. -We got a couple hours. -Yeah. -Well, thank you very much for allowing us to come.It’s been awesome! And we
look forward to seeing where this goes. And seeing you on other people’s videos,
and whatever. Yeah so this is pretty darn cool. I just love it. Holy Doodle! [laughter] Hey, thanks for joining us here at the
Big Ball of Paint. -That was absolutely one of the caches to be on the bucket
list. -Yeah. Everybody’s got to come and check this one out. I’m sure it’s got to
be on Gary’s Slinkard’s, 201 Caches to Find Before You Die, -The
people here are really nice. -They were really super fun. And it was just a joy
to talk to them. It was so therapeutic painting that ball. I loved it! Where can I get one of those. -You got a
start small. I know, you need a whole house to put it in. Wait, where are we gonna put it? Anyway, thank you so much for joining us. We’ll see you again next week
on Cache Canada. -Keep watching there’s more caches to
be found. -Yeah, and videos to watch. Hey, check that one out right there. That was
pretty cool. And ring the bell. -And ring the bell. And, where will geocaching take you? The Big Ball of Paint. You never know. See
