Richard Henee, part-time inventor and father of Balloon Boy, is still seeking media attention. Now living in Pasco County, he’s starring as a aluminum wrap hero in a comedy music video on YouTube:


Henee, surrounded by his wife and kids, drinks a can of energy drink and is transformed into a superhero who does his “Aluminum Rap.”  Henee made national news a couple of years ago when his homemade balloon took flight and the media and authorities were lead to believe that one of his children was on board and in peril. It turned out to be a hoax (although Henee now denies it was intentional).

The video also features singer/song writer Smokey Miles who wrote the music.
Also appearing in the video is THE ALUMINUM BAND featuring SHELLEY MICHELLE (Julia Roberts’ “Pretty Woman” body double), exotic dancer NARAYANA, RILEY BRAY (Golden Ghosts) and SASHA KALEIDOSCOPIA VALLELY (Spindriftt) and someone dressed as a vampire.
