Ok this Kaws balloon for this years Macy's Day Thanksgiving Parade is going to be completely insane.
Essentially the balloon will be a similar style to that of the 16ft statue that was on display last year in Hong Kong and then in NYC outside The Standard Hotel. This time the familiar Companion will be 40ft long, 34ft wide and 30ft tall and will float down the streets of NYC this Thanksgiving. I give Kaws alot of shit but this is gonna be too awesome to criticise - at least it's not a 40ft Kaws Spongebob!
Was only back in 2005 that artists started being invited to participate in the parade with artists like Tom Otterness, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami and Tim Burton being asked. âHis name kept floating to the top of the list,â said Amy Kule, executive producer of the Parade
Roll on Thanksgiving!
