UPDATE: Video got pulled. Instead, enjoy this music video about the Heene boys being “not pussified” from the same episode of “Wife Swap.” (via Buzzfeed)

Holy crap! I go offline for 90 minutes to interact with other human beings, and the Internet gets taken over by a six-year-old boy named Falcon floating thousands of feet in the air over Colorado — which, according to people near TVs, has already come crashing to earth (with no six-year-old boy inside, so it’s either a hoax or he’s dead).

Anyway, in case you’re wondering if the child floating in a balloon alone 8000 feet in the air is the result of responsible parenting, I direct you to this clip from an episode of “Wife Swap” last year, in which the boy’s father, a storm chaser, goes off the rails in a clash with a replacement mother who cares about some gay-ass subject called “safety.” Whatever that is.

UPDATE X 2: Bonus insanity below!

The description of that “Wife Swap” episode from

“When the Heene family aren’t chasing storms, they devote their time to scientific experiments that include looking for extraterrestrials and building a research-gathering flying saucer to send into the eye of the storm. In this ultimate swap, the Heenes swap lives with a psychic mom who speaks to the dead and can control the weather, her husband and her children — who believe they are destined to be stars. This show will feature aliens, punk rockers, past-life regression and, for the first time ever, the children from the two families will face off in a kids’ table meeting. “Heene/Silver,” the 100th episode of Wife Swap, destined to become a classic!”

And how.
