Remember Balloon Boy? He’s Got a Metal Band Now

One of the goofiest hoaxes of the last decade was that of Balloon Boy, the story of six year-old Falcon Heene who allegedly floated away in a helium balloon contraction built by his father.

The whole thing was, of course, a fake. (Wikipedia details everything here.)

In an episode of where-are-they-now, Jen from Live 88.5 points us to a Boing Boing story that tells of Falcon’s new metal band. Seriously.
