The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is yet to happen at the time I write this. By the time you read this, it will have already occurred. I'm going to assume the balloon didn't actually crash. I don't expect it to, anyway. The original Sonic balloon did end rather disasterously in 1993. Wind conditions were bad, he was swept into a lamp post and injurred an off-duty police officer in the process.
I was going to do a comic with subject matter of my choosing this week, because it was my birthday, but I decided the Sonic/Thanksgiving joke was too opportune to pass on.
Remember when Official Playstation Magazine (UK) claimed to have the scoop on MGS5? well...they did. Sorta. They interviewed Kojima and how he explained that it would probably happen one day but he wouldn't be that involved with it. Just a very deceptive headline to drum up sales.
