Charles Barkley on TV is always a fun time, and that continued Saturday night on TBS' Final Four show when someone behind the scenes made it so Barkley sounded like he had just sucked in some helium while talking about a blimp.

For real, that happened, and it was too darn funny.

In case you missed it, this TV gold happened shortly after Purdue beat NC State to advance to the national championship game. Barkley started talking about a Capital One blimp that had his face and body on it, and the helium effect made it just the perfect segment.
