Whether you watch it or not, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is a holiday tradition across the U.S., with many tuning in to see the creativity of the floats, the musical performances, and the surprise appearances โ€” which takes place in New York City. This year, Latine viewers were more than excited to see Bad Bunny have his very own float among other iconic characters like Snoopy, SpongeBob SquarePants, and Star Wars.

Inspired by his latest album Un Verano Sin Ti, the float was an inflated version of his frowning heart character, as seen on the album cover and merch. The heart wore Adidas sneakers to represent Benito’s upcoming collaboration with the brand. The parade’s television hosts shared that the float signifies a reminder that the spirit of summer remains no matter what season it is.ย 

Many fans were sharing their excitement for this moment online.

Some fans actually got a sneak peek at the float before the parade, capturing it getting inflated on a New York City street. “Wow, I got to witness history today when I stood at the right time as they inflated Benito’s balloon for Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade,” wrote one Tiktok user.
