Yep, there's no doubt about it. Dave Collins loves his balloons.
The Little Rock man who refers to his inflated friends as "family" has revealed his love in a bizarre YouTube video.
"I believe these balloons are my children. They are part of who I am as a person," he said.
"You feel the balloon right there with you [and it] feels so close and you feel so warm…and your heart just reaches out to this beautiful, beautiful balloon," Collins, who sleeps with a balloon under his shirt, said in the video.
"I am pure in my life, and I keep the balloons the same way," he said.
