The Heene family has released a home video of the Balloon's lift off in an effort to do damage control after Falcon told Larry King, "We did this for the show.'"
In the vid, shot by one of their older sons, Richard Heene counts down to launch, then freaks out when his wife lets go of the tether of the balloon before she was supposed to. He seems genuinely upset at her for releasing before she was supposed to, but it doesn't seem as if they realize that their son was in the balloon at the time it starts to float away.
So is this genuine? Or just "for the show," as Falcon said?
