A Rob Ford bobblehead has boldly gone where no mayor has gone before.

Cooperative Exploration fired off one of the Rob Ford bobbleheads - the Jimmy Kimmel edition - into near space on June 9.

The company posted a video of the mini-mayor’s trip on YouTube late last month with the title: “Rob Ford higher than he has ever been!!!”

After taking off from Port Stanley, Ont., the Robbie Bobbie went more than 31 km into the air.
