While I was looking online I came across the Balloon Boy Hoax. It took place on Oct 19th, 2009. The Parents allowed a gas balloon filled with helium to float away and then claimed that their six year old son was inside the balloon. It was reported all over the media. The parents eventually admitted that it was a hoax.
While I was searching on the internet I also came across the “Carrie Telekinetic Coffee Show Hoax. Which I found to be very funny, so I wanted to share!
An elaborate hoax in a New York coffee shop builds up the hype for the upcoming Carrie movie. The clip shows the elaborate plotting of the hoax including how the man would be lifted against the wall and how books, tables and chairs would move as if independently.
