macys_balloon_keith_haring.jpgSo last week was the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and surprisingly, the event was pretty much drama free: no floats destroyed city property or caused any bodily injury. However, there was at least one unscripted moment in what is usually a highly regimented and perfectly planned run of show. According to this account, one of the parade operators holding onto Keith Haring’s newly unveiled float, “Untitled (Figure with Heart),” ran into a NBC broadcast booth, prompting a shriek from ‘Today’ show host Meredith Vieira. The crew later explained the mishap, which is a huge departure from the M&M incident in 2005, when the network failed to report on a light post that came crashing to the ground and injured two people. |Courant|
