It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, it’s a universal fact that bubbles are cool.

They just are! If you don’t agree, then you’re really going to want to stick around for this article. This is the most amazing bubble performance we’ve ever seen! And as an added bonus, there are a few thoughts on life tucked in for us all to consider.

The Yang family is basically bubble royalty. For decades, they’ve been combining entertainment with art and science, not only pushing what’s physically possible with bubbles but creating a show that leaves us in awe.

Fan Yang, the patriarch of this bubble family, has 16 Guinness World Records under his belt. It’s an extensive list, but let’s just say he’s put a lot of bubbles inside of other bubbles, as well as a lot of humans inside of one (181, to be exact).

His entire family has joined in on the fun with their Gazillion Bubble Show, and we have the pleasure of hearing from his daughter, Melody, about the wonder their show brings to people across the globe. Take a look at this piece from Wired to see what she means, with the added bonus of learning a few tricks yourself!

Performances like these have a way of speaking to us without language. Well, in fact, maybe they do have a language—our shared humanity. The excitement, the wonder, the almost magic of the show brings us together, crossing the bounds of any cultural setting.

They are a gentle reminder that we aren’t all that different from a person standing on the opposite side of the globe.
