You’ve seen him. You’ve feared him. You’ve loved him. You’ve respected him. 

The Inflatable Tube Man aka AirDancer aka SkyDancer aka Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man is a man of honor, dignity, and salesmanship. His charms have likely persuaded you to buy a car, sign a petition, or just drop your jaw in wonder. But where did this symbol of human-kind’s ingenuity, something that brings out the best in all of us, come from?

Great Big Story has the secret origins of the Inflatable Tube Man, and they aren’t just blowing hot air. Caribbean artist Peter Minshall, known for his “larger than life” puppet work, and Israeli artist Doyon Gazit designed the ITM for the opening ceremony of the 1996 Summer Olympics. Originally called the Tall Boy, he soon grew into a Tall Man defined by the inflatable tube body that has become his namesake.

Now used mostly to put a smile on the face of consumers every where, the Inflatable Tube Man’s legacy continues to be as noble and memorable as his humble beginnings.

Al Roker, America's favorite formerly-portly weatherman, just lost his shit on international tv, calling Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte a liar, for the lies Lochte recently told about being attacked at gun point in Rio. Which he wasn't. Which makes that a lie. Which makes Lochte a liar.



Lochte, the liar, even admitted to "embellishing the truth" in an interview with Matt Lauer.



Read more about the drama here.

For his punishment, Lochte is getting his own turn on Dancing With the Stars, while other Olympians who created international incidents are actually getting in real trouble for wrongdoing.

Here's all the news you may have missed:

1. Grab that Remote, It's Fall TV Time, beotches!

Time to lace up your Taylor Swift-issue Keds, grab your retro backpack, and queue up your DVR so you don't miss these awesome new Science Fiction and Fantasy Shows on TV This Fall!

2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics

During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:



Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."

Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.

2. Donald Trump Breaks the Lie Barrier

Fact Check says Trump's First Ad Averages 1 Lie Every 4 Seconds. I can hear Hillary's slow golf-clap from here. Let's hope his next ad doesn't disappoint us either.

3. But Did You See the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team on the Beach in Rio?

I'm just saying, I didn't know it was possible to get an 8-pack:



Great job getting all those Olympic metals, ladies.

4. It's Thor Time!

Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth have started filming Thor: Ragnarok in Brisbane, Australia:

Olympics commentary finally was worth watching this weekend, when a Bachelorette party crashed the BBC's coverage


The bride, Maria, refused to end her 15 Minutes of Fame, but paid back the favor by giving the network some free publicity by having her party chant "BBC! BBC!" for the cameras...




The commentator, Scott Bryan, didn't seem to mind...



...and even followed up with her the next day



The cutie finally ended her brief guest starring role by signing off with the "call me" sign....




Here's to hoping her husband doesn't mind her public lack of marital commitment.
