New York, Oct 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Richard Heene, now famously called the “balloon boy dad” has emerged on the public scene again with, this time trying to get Americans to accept what he has to offer.

He is on Youtube to boost sale of the family-invented “Bear Scratch”. The Bear Scratch is a branch that is up to a meter long that can be hung on a wall. Heene explained that the product he is offering for sale was inspired by the way bears use branches to scratch their backs. It will really be interesting how Heene will ensure more orders for his new product after what he offered Americans sometime ago.

Heene and his wife got Americans and the whole world gravely concerned when he reported to authorities that his son had floated away in a balloon. The report got the United States authorities out in a full-scale rescue mission only to be told later by the publicity crazy Heene that his son was hiding in their house. It later emerged that the report was a hoax and he spent some time in jail for that.

The new video spotted an unidentified boy whom Heene failed to identify. He has three children with his wife, Mayumi.
