Watch Sonic’s Splashing Return to New York Skies

For those of you that slept in or really had no desire to put up with show tunes, marching bands and pop stars, you too can check out the small bit of time in which Sonic streaked by briskly through the crisp New York skies over 34th Street.

Nothing much to note other than the usual plug for Sonic Generations and some ham-fisted anchorman dialog. The music Sonic floated in with is the Splash Hill Zone remix featured in Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. And no, the balloon did not come crashing down onto innocent bystanders again.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you Americans out there and a hello, we love you all to the rest of the world. Save us some stuffing!

UPDATE: For those who want Sonic for all time on your hard drive, Retro member Spazz, who put the clear version of the footage you see above on YouTube, has also encoded the Sonic moment for convenient download. Sure, the links are already in the comments, but hey. Why not?

    Good thing I recorded this on my DVR. Man, watching that float with the Splash Hill remix playing makes you think: Mario may never get a Thanksgiving float. 😀

    Having him in front is awesome enough as it is, but he and those star-shaped balloons also look really good together.

    Thanks to Sonic, this was the best parade ever. I can’t wait to rub it in the faces of all my Sonic-hating friends.

    Wow, the Sonic balloon looks incredible. They put a lot of effort into making this for his return to the Macy’s Day Parade, and you know what? I love this music. The remix of Splash Hill sounds really good.
