Don't you think he looks tired?

Is there an actual parade anymore? I turned it on for a few minutes and only saw badly lip synced and performed musical numbers on a street with a big tarp over it.

/misses the parade

I was a bit confused when he said the parade was proudly brought to me by the smooth, satisfying taste of Viceroy Cigarettes.

I just hate how everything is sponsored.

Instead of the Mickey Mouse balloon, now it's "Sailor Mickey, on his way to his Carnival Cruise, with warm destinations in the Caribbean and Europe..."

And those poor people have to sit there an read the inanity they're given.

He's just old

/like in he's been doing the same schtick for way too long

"@SprintRaider: "Is there a device to delete Matt Lauer's voice while watching the Macy's parade?"

Yeah, it's called a remote control

You don't need a host for a parade. The commentary is stupid, and often so are the performances. I tuned out of the parade when I realized there was a James Bond marathon on SyFy. It's still going on, actually.
 
2012-11-23 05:29:19 PM
Yesterday was the first time in my life that I sat down and watched the parade. It was also the last as all it was was a giant advertisement and I didn't see much parade. Bleah.

well with that balding head of his and when he cuts the hair short
he really does look like a penis

with a penises face

Reminds me of the Olympic opening ceremonies. Band is playing, Laur is saying "man these guys sound terrific, give em a listen, this is wonderful blather blather blather". All I could think was "I'm trying to listen to the music you insist is so good, if you would only shut the fark up so I could hear it you bloody gasbag".

Some egos need to be pricked, but I suspect he's got his own iron dome protecting his.
 
2012-11-23 06:14:49 PM
So if Lauer was 10 years younger then NBC's coverage would have been enjoyable?
 
2012-11-23 06:17:16 PM
They're already trying to phase Laur out...
 
2012-11-23 06:28:01 PM
How long has it been since the parade wasn't poorly lip-synced street pop and hip-hop dance crews? White people don't watch this shiat.
 
2012-11-23 06:59:47 PM
Matt Lauer introducing a broadway number and screwing it up royally - "And now here's Matthew Broderick singing Cole Porter's 'It's "S" Wonderful." Right Matt, "S" Wonderful. Not It's S'Wonderful. Only considered Standard for about 80 years or so.

The Ann Curry Curse is going to get Matt Lauer.

Exactly what I thought. I rarely even watch it, but it just looked like one long commercial, with bad lip synching thrown in. No wonder Matt Lauer isn't brimming with life.

Actually, I was looking at him and thinking that he had pretty eyes, so I guess that proves I'm old too.

Nope - that was Jenna Wolfe.

The real question is who the fark watches a parade on tv?
 
2012-11-23 08:32:01 PM
Neil Patrick Harris should host it. There, I fixed it.
 
2012-11-23 08:34:21 PM
this is what a parade float should look like.

litespeed74: The real question is who the fark watches a parade on tv?


People whose family members are in the parade, one would assume.

I think that if the parades weren't broadcast, there probably wouldn't be a parade. Too expensive to put on these days without sponsors, and they wouldn't put their money behind it if it wasn't on TV.

It still is the most awesome thing ever.

Who actually watches parades on television?

I always enjoy hearing the huge applause and in the background no one is clapping.

Yeah, I thought my 3 year old might appreciate seeing the big balloons and bands. After ten minutes of talking heads and lip synching to some farking Broadway show, I turned it off.

What the hell are you talking about? I can't think of anything whiter than a Thanksgiving parade.
 
2012-11-23 10:41:44 PM
I'd love to have a drink with Lauer after the parade. It's an embarrassing, money-drenched shiatfest and he knows it, and hearing him vent about it afterwards would be epic.
 
2012-11-23 11:08:06 PM
It was fun to hear the auto-tune doing about half of the singing.

Bad enough that it's recorded in advance. These kid singers can't even sing.

Get off my lawn.
 
2012-11-23 11:11:04 PM
I don't think I've seen even 1 second of the parade for at least 10 years. The last time I remember actually WATCHING it for any appreciable length of time was probably...1985 or so.

Corporate sponsorship? At the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade?

Ridiculous.
 
2012-11-24 01:28:59 AM
Yeah, I was going to say if you're watching Thanksgiving Day parades on TV, you're the one who's getting too old. Or you're younger than 8.
 
2012-11-24 02:03:58 AM
I got to sleep in until 1:00pm. No parade, no shopping, no cooking and only brief interaction with the family. Yay me!

Didn't Willard Scott used to host it 1990s? Now Matt Lauer is too old?
