The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a holiday tradition. And as you can imagine, with a production that big, things don’t always go as planned. The folks at The Hollywood Reporter came out with a new list of thirteen times things didn’t go according to plan at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Most of the issues had to do with the giant balloons that we’ve come to expect during the parade. Sometimes the balloons get stuck on things.For example, the time the Superman balloon got snagged on a tree and ripped his arm off. We can’t have Superman flying around with only one arm! And there was another time when the Kermit The Frog balloon got stuck in a tree and had his head deflated. Can you imagine how traumatic that must’ve been for kids watching?
The Barney balloon has had issues and the M&Ms balloon has caused injuries. The Thanksgiving Parade can be a dangerous place to be.
There have also been issues with the “performances” during the parade. I put that word in quotation marks because we know they aren’t really singing on the floats. If you didn’t know that, sorry for the spoiler. In 2011, right after he won American Idol, Scotty McCreery missed his cue to start singing and the song started. That was kind of an embarrassing moment, but I’d say his career has been just fine.
