Most Balloon Boy songs blow -- in an excellent way!
The text block accompanying the video above, which was posted earlier this morning , asks, "Surely the first song ever to be written and recorded about Balloon Boy?" Hell to the no. The number of parodies about young Falcon Heene's non-flight has exploded like overinflated Mylar, littering YouTube with tunes whose awfulness is actually kinda charming, not to mention appropriate. Below, check out five more selections, including "I'm in a Box," which riffs on the Andy Samberg classic "I'm in a Boat" (making it a parody of a parody!) and the musical stylings of one Joey Piscopo, who is indeed the son of former Saturday Night Live regular Joe Piscopo. I've never been prouder as a Coloradan, and an American.
