Billy Eichner of the truTV show Billy on the Street recently hosted his first-ever Thanksgiving Day parade. And what would be a Thanksgiving day parade without giant balloons, floats, and Katie Couric?
The segment does a nice job of parodying the cultural icons often selected for such parades. And every parade needs a giant Sean Penn balloon. Check out the funny video.
Happy Thanksgiving! What is your favorite part of Billy’s parade? Leave your two cents in the comments.
