Ever wonder what happened to Balloon Boy? As explained in this week's feature, "What's Up?," nine-year-old Falcon Heene and his family are now living an hour north of Tampa. Falcon and his two older brothers are in a metal band called the Heene Boyz and their hyperactive father is still inventing crazy stuff. (Remember the Bear Scratch?) See his two most recent infomercials below. Warning: One of them involves excessive air humping.
