Macy’s Meets Kanye: Here’s Hoping NBC Airs The Thanksgiving Day Parade on a 10-Second Delay

24 Nov

So, 80 years in the game and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day organizers have decided that the traditional, tried and true doldrums of obligatory marching bands, mammoth balloons and the perfunctory lip-syncing pop star simply won’t due.  That’s right! The powers –that-be have determined that controversy is the order of the day during one of the biggest holiday parades of the year.

Scheduled to perform “Lost in The World” from his recently released “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” album, Kanye West will be lending his special brand of foolery celebrity appeal to this year’s festivities.  And while I do plan to DVR the parade, just in case Mr. West opts to live up to his outlandish, outspoken and out of control persona by…let’s say, (grasps unfounded claim from the air) calling out the “Way To Shop” retailer during his Turkey Day performance for profiling minority shoppers, I am sure that in an effort to push more record sales, Yeezy will be on his best behavior.

Still, if Kanye does act-up and decides toast his delegation of d**chebags live on the air, (which is highly likely, as his filter was irreparably damaged years ago when he had to have his jaw reset) Macy’s and NBC will have no one to blame but themselves.  Granted, people typically mature, grow and learn from their mistakes as time passes, but I don’t care what you say: after Bush & Blacks and I’mma Let You Finish, any network exec that willingly gives The Louis Vuitton Don a live mic at this point deserves whatever disciplinary action that is handed down to him/her by the FCC.

But hey, I am sure that in their eyes, an 80th Anniversary is as good a time as any to “go modern” and “push the envelope;” especially for the sake of 50 million units in Nielsen ratings.

Trust me, my corn will be popped for this spectacle!
