There really are some dumb people in this world.

If you saw the movie "Up" you no doubt thought the scene where the character named Carl in the movie uses balloons to fly.

Now imagine looking up and seeing a man sitting in a lawn chair with one hundred helium balloons tied to it floating in the sky.

Yes, I am serious...

Daniel Boria of Calgary, Alberta (Canada) bought a $10.00 lawn chair and approximately 100 balloons filled with helium, tied them to the chair and took off (literally) in an attempt to promote his cleaning products company.

Judging from the numerous reports on TV and online he did draw attention to himself, maybe just not the kind he intended...

His stunt landed him in jail, charged with one count of mischief causing danger to life and a second charge of mischief to property under $5,000.
