An unconventional star in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is causing some viewers to get a little hot and bothered. While some viewers thought the Jolly Green Giant float was “creepy,” others admired the mascot’s toned physique and apparent glow-up from previous years. During the parade, one person tweeted, “There is no hotter fictional vegetable spokesman than the Jolly Green Giant,” while another wondered, “Why is the Jolly Green Giant making me question my sexuality?” “Um, you guys, the Jolly Green Giant can get it…” a third warned the timeline, while others joked that the Jolly Green Giant had been “yassified..” ”
