Dear international readers, America has a holiday coming up where we eat a ton of food and then pass out that's supposed to commemorate a nice fable that we tell small children to avoid explaining a much more nuanced and politically charged historical situation. There are other qualities to Thanksgiving
, however, like football (American football, you know, handegg?), and a very serious parade in New York City. So serious it had to be rickrolled by a Cartoon Network show.
Well, in addition slow moving decorated vehicles covered in awkwardly lip syncing celebrities, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade also famously features balloons. A fifty foot tall Pikachu
has been a member of the floating company since 2001, and this year he is reportedly going to be joined by a couple of new faces.
