Since 1927 the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been filling the skies of New York with colorful balloon representations of pop culture icons. Video games didn’t enter the picture until 1993, and only three gaming icons have made the cut so far.
These things are huge up close, guys. “Pikachu! Pikachu! Pikachu!”
You might think balloon art is kind of, I dunno, cheesy. Or just for kids. Not this, though. This is some next level balloon twisting.
Guess what happened in New York today. Hint: it had to do with balloons. And parades. And Thanksgiving.
