The annual Thanksgiving Day parade hasn’t exactly hit the sweet spot for Americans this year like it has in years gone by.
Despite that, we’ve still been blessed with the greatest float your eyes are ever likely to see, even if it isn’t actually real.

A larger than life float hovered over the streets of New York showing off the WWE’s people’s champ and hollywood megastar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
With so many famous roles and larger than life moments from inside the ring, picking which one moment to immortalise in a giant balloon doesn’t sound like an easy task.
Going with arguably the most iconic image of the star from his early days was the perfect call.
The amazing spectacle was a commercial for a show coming in 2021 titled ‘Young Rock’ which “follows the wild times of Dwayne as a kid, a teen and a college footballer”.
Johnson himself called the giant “fanny pack float” a moment that “takes the cake” throughout his glittering career.
The amazing image of the superstar hovering over the streets of New York quickly whipped around social media with users wishing he was around at all times.
“Let’s just float the Young Rock balloon around the country for the remainder of the year. I think we all need him up there, looking over us,” Editor of movie website Bloody Disgusting John Squires wrote.
The WWE on Fox account even chimed in: “The most electrifying float in #Thanksgiving parade history.”
Miami Herald writer Scott Fishman wrote: “I’m going to let you finish Thanksgiving Parade but this is the most electrifying float of all time. If ya smell … what @TheRock is cooking.”
Johnson has been a larger than life figure ever since his wrecking ball days in the WWE, but he’s never been bigger than this float.
The 48-year-old wrestling legend who remains in better shape than most people will ever achieve showed off his insane strength in September when he tore down his own front gate after a power outage caused by a storm rendered it inoperable.
