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.
