I watched part of it and it angered me because I thought it would be funny.

I'm sure there were some good parts, but the 30 minutes I watched were not great.

Can this please become a thing for Super Bowls, Presidental Inauguration's, Firework shows  and what not.

Why would anybody want to watch a parade anyway? I can't think of anything more boring.

It could have been funnier, but it came off like they thought they'd improvise the whole thing with not much writing. The problem with that is improv comedy sucks.

Yeah it really wasn't terribly entertaining as a whole. :/ bah

I didn't see the commercial for it until yesterday.  I wasn't paying attention but recognized the voices.  I looked it up, saw it was real, and was waiting for angry reactions.

Parades are SO FARKING BORING, even if you've got a front row seat. I think they'd have done better had they not tried to be funny at all but just went the other way and put more commentary about hiw much parades suck. Make some comments about other things they could be spending their time on, forgetting people's names, taking phone calls from their exes, drinking, etc.

Will Ferrell should know by now that Molly Shannon isn't funny!
 
2018-01-02 11:41:48 PM  
It isn't possible for someone to watch the whole thing and think it was real. The whole set of barnyard insults at the Sooners (they poop their pants and sleep in a barn), and "Cord" talking about spacing out on his lawn for a week and a half while watching the Miracle Gro float. And Ferrell talking about how much he fears horses and caught mountains of wild salmon with his mouth and bare hands in 2007 during a "dark period.".

I'll be 49 in April, and I've never seen a parade. I actually purposely avoid them at this point in order to keep the streak going.

Regular parade goers look at me in horror when I tell them this.

I'm not saying this to be insulting, but I cannot imagine the hard left turns my life would have to take before I ever found a need to describe the way 'regular parade goers' (plural) reacted when I did something.

It's not fun to play, either. Just a little bit less boring in comparision to only watching it.

The sad part is the Bob Eubanks/Stephanie Edwards coverage was the funniest and they did not mean to be. Every year their complete lack of chemistry projected this feeling they were about to devolve into "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" The cheery casual racism. The of course this gem.

Have you been to a parade in real life? It's much worse
 
2018-01-03 05:36:23 AM  
There are only two reasons to go to a parade:

1) If you know someone in it and like that person.

2) You're a parent and at least it's not watching Frozen for the 5,000th time.
 
2018-01-03 06:04:34 AM  
It was alright. I was a bit letdown. Thought it had more potential but it really doesn't. Parades are pretty boring, especially on TV, so they're a hard thing to riff on.  It's like "Manos". It's such a terrible movie that it's really hard to get through even with the jokes.

Ditto.   I realized they were improvising most of it, and doing a really poor job.

Baseball is the only sport I know all the rules to and don't suck at. I've watched a few games on TV when my team has been on track to make the playoffs and those were exciting games, but there are plenty of worse sports to watch in my opinion. Like football. Let's travel 10 yards then stop and reevaluate the play over and over turning this 20 minute game into 3 hours.

Gotta say I agree with the parade hate. Seems like one of things people used to do for fun before fun was invented.

That is from heavy editing. I've heard they film 2-3 hours to get the 20 minutes that worked.

The criticism is, you would expect some comedy with such a lineup, and the segments I have heard simply were boring and much like other presenters of the parade.  You have ample time and knowledge about floats and others involved so you would hope for some prepared material and it seemed more like a poor improv type performance.

3)You're in a marching band, and your @#$%^ing band director thinks parades are "good publicity" and that you joined a marching band to walk heel-toe for seven miles avoiding horse shiat in freezing weather, playing the same damned #$%ing jingle bells song that barely qualifies as music every 100 yards.
