Giant Inflatable Cucumber Destroyed On Sydney Harbour In Tragic Accident

A 40-metre cucumber goes for a ride on the harbour -- stop me if you've heard this one.

A promotional event for Hendrick's Gin will have to go ahead without the star of the show, after a giant inflatable cucumber -- which was supposed to tour around Sydney Harbour -- burst in transit.

Footage filmed from an office in Barangaroo captured the moment the vegetable went cuc-under, after falling off its barge and ripping in half.

The giant green spectacle was 40 metres long, eight metres wide and eight metres high, according to Hendrick's Gin, and was set to be a part of a three-day long event for the product.

“We are deeply concerned about the whereabouts of our cucumber," the company said in a statement after the incident.

"For any information that leads to the discovery of our beloved Cuke, we’re offering a reward: a lifetime of Hendrick’s Gin (to be enjoyed responsibly of course) along with a lifetime supply of cucumbers."
