Falcon Heene Balloon Boy Story Has Legs
'Balloon Boy' Falcon Heene is just about the most searched thing on the net right now (other than 'NFL,' 'Halloween,' and 'Twitter'). But that phrase, in itself, isn't a Google hot trend today. Make it 'Balloon Boy Story' (which, we assume, is a more memorable synonym for 'hoax') and you've got one of the hottest trending topics of the day. The story has taken on a whole new form now that we know the whole thing was a publicity stunt.
The Heene family falsely told authorities that their 6-year-old son Falcon was trapped in a mylar balloon, flying high above Colorado. Now, the parents of three are in custody for the hoax.
Doesn't mean it's not a good story, and clearly you agree. Keep an eye out for 'Bubble Boy' + 'who knows what' to appear at the top of Google Trends for a long while to come. With all this popularity, their story is ripe for a made-for-TV movie in the future. We decided to cast the family -- and other important characters -- for the yet-to-be announced film. See who we want to star in the drama.
