Balloon Boy Falcon Heene Gets Letter From Her Majesty The Queen?

heene-falconBALLOON Boy has received a letter from Her Majesty the Queen.

The boy who received the letter is age five. Oh, dear reader, it’s not him; not six-year-old Falcon Heene. This is Charlie Castle who was one of about 50 schoolchildren who released balloons during an end-of-term farewell at his school near High Wycombe in July.

The Balloon Boy Hoax Timeline

balloon-boyIS Balloon Boy Falcon Heene a hoax? Here’s what Richard Heene said:

“Brad (Falcon’s brother) said he saw it, then he said he videotaped it and we watched it back and sure enough he got in,” said Richard. “But obviously he got out, so I had to re-track back in my mind, did he fall out? It was supposed to be tethered down. It wasn’t tethered properly and it took off.”

Now enjoy the video the big countdown launch.

And we love the Heenes – anyone who can get the mainstream media that excited over a balloon has to be admired:

papa-joes-pizza-falcon-heeneYOU can use the Falcon Heene Balloon Boy story to your own advantage, if you know how. On 4Chan, the lads ordered a Papa John’s pizza to be sent to the Heenes family home. The pizza arrives at the same time one of the countless media nodding heads are live on the scene of a boy hiding in the attic.

Anorak foresees a new era in advertising, wherein the BBC can make some money by pimping out news of where its TV crews are going to be and allowing companies to bid for in-shot opportunities.

Here are some suggestions for LIVE FROM tie-ins:

House of Commons – Benefit Fraud Hotline
Clarence House – Tampons
Manchester United – Omega watches
Scotland Yard – Stair lifts

And many , many more…
