DNC Balloon Director freaks out on CNN Live to soft rock 80's hit tune, "Higher" by Van Halen...
The some 100,000 balloons were choreographed by expert balloon engineers to drop in a crowd pleasing display of red, white and blue patriotism. But sadly -- balloon ballet was never to be fully realized.
In a pre DNC balloon exposé, a journalist asked a convention Official, “But what if the balloons don't fall right”?
"I have a house in England. Bye!" she said.
Go balloons... Balloons... What's happening balloons? There's not enough of them coming down. All balloons! Where the hell, there's nothing falling! What the fuck are you guys doing up there?!? [Wonkette]
