'89 reasons to live.

This is a late Thanksgiving treat, but we had to post it. Trust. We found it via Thighs Wide Shut—it's a two-page retrospective on the 1989 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, featuring eminently watchable, hugely embarrassing performances by a superhero-molested Melba Moore singing "Holding Out for a Hero" on a Marvel Comics float and Fred Travelena as the Joker singing the gayest version ever of the Anthony Newley hit "The Joker." There are wonderful appearances by such acronyms as ALF and NKOTB, and there are even commercials for "The Golden Girls" and, yes, "Amen." Hiiiiiiiii, Reverend.

Enjoy. And try not to spend the rest of the day downloading this crap. Just try. We dare you.
