What do Michael Jackson and Balloon Boy have in common?

They could both show up on your doorstep this Halloween.

For the first year, Jackson was named on Yahoo’s list of the top 10 Halloween costume searches, according to a Chicago Tribune article last week.

But the king of Pop may have competition from  “Balloon Boy,”  the most recent topic of cable news broadcasts and office water cooler conversations.

As reported by CNN and the NY Times, Canadian model airplane retailer Plantraco Microflight, has unveiled a Balloon Boy costume available on their Web site for $19.99.

Below is the part of the ad listed on the company’s Web site:

“We couldn’t resist making this easy to wear Politically Incorrect Balloon Boy Halloween Costume. We hope you have fun with it!

Now you too can enjoy all the media attention you want with Plantraco’s Balloon Boy Hoax kit. A great flying saucer that is going to put a big smile on your face. Colorado flying saucers and hot air balloon hoaxes are famous these days, get on the bandwagon for trick-or-treat halloween fun and loads of laughs for everyone!

Just ring the doorbell and say “I’m supposed to be flying in there, but my dad said to stay in the box for the show!”you are practically guaranteed to get double and triple halloween treats with this authentic and collectible Balloon Boy Flying Saucer Hoax trick costume!”
