"Balloon Boy" Sick on Today Show after Dad Says Boy Confused in Calling Episode "For a Show" - Video


Here is video from the Today Show this morning where the "Balloon Boy" Family was on air. The father, Richard Heene, denied that the whole bizarre episode that unfolded yesterday was a "hoax.

" Meredith Viera asked him to clarify why son, Falcon, said hid in the attack because "we did this for a show."

The father essentially said his son was "confused," and shortly after he gave that answer, the boy got sick to his stomach on camera.

When asked directly if this was a "hoax," Richard Heene acted indignant and said he was tired of hearing that question. He said it was not a hoax, and said they had nothing to gain by doing such a thing.

I've gone from being mildly amused by this story to wanting to punch those parents in the face. Traipsing your sick son out in front of cameras? Attention whores much?
