Well, it DID get them publicity

and attention, just not the kind they wanted:
The garish white, blue and green inflatable, which can be seen from a mile away, was shot down three times by angry locals but the company had it patched up and put it back in the air.
The blimp, which is 30ft long and has a 10ft diameter and costs around £2,500 to buy, has been shot down three times according to locals.

It first went up at the end of August and has been shot down by a mystery sniper three times since, once in October and twice in November.

It is not known what type of gun has been used to shoot it down

Well, at 600 meters up, we know it wasn't a longbow. Let's see, 600 times... about 2000 feet up, pretty good shot. I wonder if they measured the grouping?
