Remember the Balloon Boy Hoax?

On October 15th, 2009, the parents of Falcon Henee, a 6 year old, claimed their son was on board a helium balloon that launched accidentally.  The media and much of the public followed it minute to minute with great interest.  It was later revealed to have been a hoax - a publicity stunt for the media greedy family's parents. (Story from Wikapedia).

Here is one artist's interpretation of the event (diastema on Flicker)
