The Sad KISS Float at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Is a Perfect Metaphor for 2020
ICYMI the world is really different right now, and like it or not, you just have to deal with it. And this goes for everyone, even super-rich rock bands, who can no longer show off their celebrity in the grand, self-important fashion of old. For a reminder of that, just look back at KISS' super deflated appearance at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

As KISS rocker Paul Stanley himself showed off, the band's participation in the 2014 parade was anything but grandiose — and they know it.

As Stanley tweeted, "We showed up at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade after being shown sketches of a HUGE float and told we would be surrounded by 100 baton twirlers in KISS makeup. Instead we got THIS!!! An SUV with a U-Haul attached and two unimpressed escorts. HA! HA! HA! Look how happy we are!"

Thankfully, Stanley included some photo evidence, which indeed looks sad as hell.

Whether it's as sad as playing a pre-COVID concert to sharks on a tiny boat in Australia is up to you.
