**OKAY PEOPLE, WE GOT A WMG COPYRIGHT CLAIM AGAINST US SO WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO TAKE THIS ONE TO THE STREETS LIKE CHRISTIAN SLATER IN PUMP UP THE VOLUME. THE VIDEO IS NOW ON YAHOO.**


I've never believed in much, but in my youth I held a private article of faith that in the extra mode of Balloon Fight if I just kept going a little bit longer, if I just held on, something good would happen. It had to. Or else what was the point?

A small part of me still wants to believe this, but I know better now.
