'Balloon Boy' And Brothers Forming Boy Band (VIDEO)

The 'balloon boy,' otherwise known by the awesome name of Falcon Heene, is forming a boy band with his brothers because, well, who really knows why.

This isn't the fame-starved Heene family's first foray into the music business. The boys put out a charming rap song and accompanying music video called "Not Pussified." (Scroll down to watch it.) The Fab Life speculates that this latest effort is directed at selling the family's patented "bear scratcher" device.

Anyway, friend and music associate Smokey tells Radar Online:

Richard himself plays harmonica, and his wife is a good guitar player too. They are encouraging their boys with the band but they have not come up with a name yet.

They wanted to call themselves The Balloon Boy Band, but for legal reasons, this would not be permitted, so other names like The Bear Scratch Band are being talked about as well.

They have asked me to help them with the band and to write a few songs, which I'm looking forward to doing for them.

We look forward to hearing the "Balloon Boy Blues."
