America was riveted by the unfolding folk-tale of the balloon boy in October 2009. Young Falcon Heene was thought to have been carried away on board a helium balloon fashioned like a spacecraft. The story of the missing boy panicked an entire nation. In pursuit of the floating balloon, unabated media mania erupted. Americans spent several hours that day watching a drifting and sagging balloon, on its journey across Colorado. After the balloon came back to Earth, and the missing boy was found hiding in his attic, America let out a huge sigh of relief. It’s a story that will live on for some time.

“People are bombarded with the bizarre, yet all too real stories of our time. Being able to participate in the growing legend of the balloon boy is like immersing yourself into an event sure to become an instant classic American folk-tale.
