WATCH | Deni Yang blows bubbles for a living. Like, a "Gazillion" of them.
The self-described "bubble enthusiast" is one of five Yang family members to perform the "Gazillion Bubble Show" in New York City since 2007. With some 4,000 performances in the books, the show itself has blown up, impressing everyone from Oprah Winfrey to Regis Philbin along the way.

Yang had to learn the basics before incorporating smoke, lasers and fans into the show.
Even though we're just blowing bubbles, there's actually a form of professional etiquette that you have to portray onstage, too.
As children, Yang and his sister Melody learned the trade in their basement with their mom, Ana.
Yang's flashy act surrounds audiences with thousands of bubbles (or sometimes just one).
Family members have held world records in many bubble-related categories, including a 2012 stunt that (briefly) "fully encapsulated" 181 people inside a single bubble, Yang said. That record has since been broken, but the Yang family still holds another Guinness record for longest soap-bubble wall.
It's such a basic element of nature: a sphere. You can see through it. You can see your small reflection. It's just very simple.
Bubbles: A 'small reflection' of who we are
As for what makes bubbles so appealing, Yang sees both the profundity and the simplicity.
