The 'Before' Photos Of The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade Are Creepy And Weird

Who are the real monsters here?!

It's Thanksgiving, and what better way to celebrate than to capture a group of the most beloved, gentle giants and parade them around for our own sadistic pleasure?

Like "The Purge," the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has become a yearly ritual, where humanity releases all of its sick urges toward these otherwise kind inflatable colossi.

Well, let's get on with it, you monsters.

Look at Charlie Brown! What is this, a snuff film?? "I'm a good man, I'm a good man, I'm a good man..."

Olaf is being drawn and quartered!

Pikachu chooses us, and this is how we repay it??

These good-natured behemoths are freaking out!
