I know because science.
This is the basic answer without going into really complex ****

Water is a polar substance.
The static electricity aligns the water molecules as the fall past the charged balloon.
Two uniform (well, close enough) magnetic fields are therefore created.
Magnetism does its cool **** that it's so good at.

Nothing new to me, water is polar and they put a static charge on the balloon. The water is attracted to the charge.

Explanation: Water is a polar substance, which means that it is either partially positive or partially negative. Electrons are the smallest component of an atom and make up the outer reaches of atoms. When a substance such as hair or a shirt are rubbed up against the balloon, Static Electricity is made by either removing or adding electrons to the atoms that make up the balloon, making the balloon partially positive or partially negative. Thus, a lot of the atoms will be the opposite polarity of the water, and as opposites attract, the water is magnetically pulled toward the balloon. If you tried this with a non-polar substance, such as vegetable oil, nothing would happen because non-polar substances have a neutral charge and the molecular forces between electrons are much stronger, so it is very difficult to give a non-polar substance any polarity, thus the names "Polar" and "non-polar".
Conclusion: This **** is ******* cool.
