Sultan's Elephant grand finale video

Last weekend French street-performers Royal Deluxe put on an incredible show in London, called The Sultan's Elephant. The show opened with a "rocket ship" crash-landing in Trafalgar Square, followed by a 20-foot-high, incredibly detailed puppet of a little girl leaving the ship and meeting her benefactor, the Sultan, who rode a 43-tonne wooden elephant that walked the streets of London, spraying its trunk. Xurry caught video of its final lap around town:

The final bits of the Sultan's Elephant's tour around London, including the giant little puppet girl entering and taking off in her spaceship back to the "Land of Dreams." I managed to film the last day and have edited it down and posted it on Youtube.
