Balloon Boy Says: "We Did This For The Show"

Hours after he worried America sick into thinking he was on a runaway balloon flying over Colorado - while he was just hiding in the attic - 6-year-old Falcon Henne, aka "Balloon Boy", appears with his family on "Larry King Live" with Wolf Blitzer.

In this scene, Falcon admits that he heard his parents calling him, but declined to come out of the garage.

At 0:40, he mutters, "We did this for the show."

This leads father Richard to try and explain what he just said. "Whenever we tell him things like, it's a bad thing t do, he does go and hide," he says.

Earlier, when discussing his hiding in the attic, Falcon Henne was heard saying, "We did this for the show."

In this clip, Wolf Blitzer brings this to the family's attention, and they are asked to elaborate.

"I have no idea," Richard said. "I think he was talking about the media."

When Wolf asks the question again, Richard says: "I think I can see the direction you guys are hedging on this... We weren't even going to do this interview... I'm kind of appalled... that you guys are trying to suggest something else."

Here is more of the interview. Pay attention to the 5:00 mark which sounds totally rehearsed!
