This year’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will feature a Skylander

Pikachu makes another appearance

I don’t think I’ve watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade since I was 10, but if gathering around the TV (or the actual event in New York City) is your thing, this year it’ll feature Pikachu and Eruptor, the Skylander.

While the actual parade is basically meaningless to me, the fact that gaming has become this popular is a pretty awesome thing. Some people dislike it when their hobby gets too big, but as someone who has made fun of occasionally for playing Pokémon as a kid, I’m pretty satisfied.
