Puzzle: Two balloons on a hose

Two balloons are inflated to different sizes. Both are attached to a piece of hose, and a clip is placed to stop any air moving between them. What will happen when the clip is removed? Will the two balloons even out in size? Will the smaller balloon get smaller and the larger balloon larger? Or will nothing happen at all?

Join Dr Yan as he breathes new life into the ever surprising science of balloons.
