NYC-native Billy Eichner pulled out all the stops for his Thanksgiving-themed episode of Billy On the Street this Thursday, giving us his version of the often unbearable Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Tapping former parade aficionado, Katie Couric, to co-host, Eichner's pageant of inflatable splendor is, of course, magnificent gay surrealism.

Some highlights:

"The parade kicks off today with one of my FAVORITE holiday characters...ROONEY MARA!"

Followed by: "Mara's new movie 'Carol' is directed by Todd Haynes, who directed the first film I saw gay sex in...that's called 'POISON.'"


A United States of Tara homage:


"When it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, then you know, it's beginning to look a lot like Sean Penn!"


Marching publicists:


A Mark Ruffalo float:


The grand finale... a Maggie Gyllenhaal balloon:

God bless Billy Eichner, and God bless The United States of Tara.
