I thought this was pretty cool. I hope the commercial will be shown in the US.

Well,they were real chairs, though made of balsa wood and weighing under four pounds each. The only question is, what they could reasonably be expected to support?

I think that the average conspiracy theory discussed at this forum could rest at ease and comfort in such a chair.

Perhaps the theorists themselves, seeing their theories reposing so quietly. could be convinced to give the chairs a try themselves. We can encourage them by saying that the view from the edge of space will give them a perfect opportunity to refute NASA's tissue of lies. We can give them X-ray specs (http://www.thingsyouneverknew.com/product/code/27685.do?showPrevNext=false), so that they can "view the Van Allen Belt at first hand," and propeller beanies (http://www.mcphee.com/shop/pages/Levitating-Propeller-Beanie.html) "to ensure a gradual descent."

And when they sit down in the chairs with a splintering crash, and watch bemused as the freed balloons, with dangling chunks of balsa, sail off into the sky...

Ah, what a Youtube video that would make. %?)
