With the 2011 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade lined up for November 24, the final touches on the floats and balloons are just about complete, but sadly, Jim Behrie’s hilariously deflating 'Proposed New Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Balloons' won’t be making an appearance.
Created for The Hairpin, the Brooklyn-based artist’s illustrations bring the laughs and the truth, commenting on the current state of the American economy, North America’s obsession with the iPhone and other heavy issues. Despite the dark tones in the drawings, however, you can’t help but chuckle at the thought of these would-be Thanksgiving day balloons, and the witty dialogue included in each one.
For a hilarious take on this strong holiday tradition, check out Jim Behrie’s Proposed New Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Balloons.
