How many times have you and your drunken mates sat around discussing how great it would be to see a spin-off from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but starring the two car park attendants who took the iconic red Ferrari out for a joy ride?

This idea is awful. I will watch the film on day one.

This sounds just ridiculous enough to be worth your time. The Australian Seven Network has commissioned a local version of the Dutch series Blown Up in which contestants create unique and mind-blowing balloon artworks.
Stephen Curry and Becky Lucas are on board to host.
