“The Adventures of the Balloon Boy”

Written by

And now for something that will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day: three Columbia seniors pay a musical tribute to the Balloon Boy saga:

It may not be the best in autotuning or dancing, but dammit, the chorus is catchy enough to be third on NYMag’s Top Five Balloon Boy Tribute Songs

  1. THIS  

    is SO great! Make it viral!

  2. Ben ben ben  

    you are so great

  3. Joey  

    is CUTE! Anyone know which way he swings?

    Pleaseeee be gay!

  4. ugh  

    that is so annoying.

    And the thing is, these a cappella kids are the ones who will go on to write more annoying things for profit at disney and abc family and then you'll have to deal with your kids channeling them one day. peter pan manboys who will forever haunt the airwaves.

    stop them now before they can do more harm.

    • wow,  

      #4, if you're bitter and jaded at this age, i'd hate to see you if you ever have kids.

      stop shitting on something that was supposed to be cute and harmless, and go get a life.

      anyways, JOEY BEN AND RICK YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!

      and no, i'm not an a capella kid.

    • love you ugh

      these kids are friends with AJ pascua (the one who made racist comments about Harlem), thus by default they suck as well.

    effort on their part - and a welcome distraction from midterms. bwog haters have been and always will be tools. not worth getting heated about it though
