The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City is just as big a holiday institution as having to deal with extended family members who you spend the rest of the year explicitly avoiding. If you ask me, the event should have been permanently cancelled after 2008, because there is no way anyone is going to top Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends' ultimate rickroll.

Anyway, as part of his 20th anniversary celebration, Sonic the Hedgehog will once again be a balloon in the parade. His first and only prior appearance was in 1993, where he earned the distinction of being the first videogame-themed balloon in the event's history. This time, he's appearing in his green-eyed incarnation, but I'm sure he'll be in good company right alongside such endearing icons like... err... the Aflac duck?
