Man Charged After Lifting Off in Balloon-Covered Lawn Chair
Where was this guy when Pixar was promoting "Up!"

Daniel Boria of Calgary, Canada, decided to abandon his life on Earth and soar among the clouds, at least for a little while. Boria thought the best way to promote his company, All Clean Natural, was to affix 100 helium filled balloons to a lawn chair and fly high to the sky.

According to the Toronto Star, the $12,000 worth of balloons were no match for the wind. Boris told the Star that things got pretty intense up there. "I rose to a certain altitude and the winds got pretty intense. I was somersaulting out the chair and it felt like minus 30. I watched below as the Stampede and my dream drifted away."

His stunt certainly didn't go unnoticed, especially by the police. Authorities charged Boria with mischief causing danger to life, although, he could expect a few other charges to follow.

Luckily, he only sustained minor injuries, but it goes without saying, don't try this at home.

Something tells us he just have just rented a hot air balloon. Take a peek through the gallery below from Hot Air Balloon Day!
