Do You Remember When The Joker Crashed The 1989 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?

The Joker - Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
To be honest I had no idea this event took place back in 1989, that was my Sophomore year of High-School so there was a very real possibility that I had stayed up the night before playing the NES and couldn’t pull myself out of bed to catch the appearance of the Joker. Considering that I was wrapped up in the Batmania that was all encompassing that year as this Batman T-Shirt I found when cleaning out my backroom a couple of months ago should prove…

I really loved this shirt. Hard to believe it was hanging out in my closet for 24 years!

…I know I would have forced myself to get out of bed and see this Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade appearance!

I liked that little reveal at the end of who the Joker actually was, very nice. A big thanks by the way goes to Comics Alliance for giving me the heads up on this video!
