Watch this giant octopus kite take flight

Show Kites Singapore flew this 200-foot custom-built octopus kite that requires six people to launch and control.

Flying this behemoth requires ideal weather and place, in this case Singapore's Marina Barrage.

Fun fact: Marina Barrage is an ingenious dam that serves as a freshwater/saltwater barrier, creating a reservoir in the tidal basin that does not fluxuate significantly in depth.
