Miss Piggy Isn’t the Only One Who Caught Tony Bennett’s Fall During Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The tradition of waking up Thanksgiving morning and crowding around the T.V. to watch Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is one that many Americans take part in each year.

People look forward to the famous “Rockette” kickline, Santa’s grand finale, their favorite balloon, and the cringe-worthy moment that’s inevitable for live TV.

However, the difference in 2016 is that headlines aren’t up to the television hosts who are trained to keep their cool no matter what happens, but rather the ever-watching eye of social media.

And this year, Twitter didn’t miss a thing:

After singing the last notes in their duet of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” Miss Piggy saved Tony Bennett from a potentially devastating tumble when their parade float rushed forward.

And the moment took the internet by turkey-day storm:

Some people noting the moment should go down in puppet history:

And labeling it the highlight of the year:

While one woman called out the parade’s hosts on ignoring the monumental moment:

And this viewer declared no one should underestimate the matter:

Bennett’s publicist, Sylvia Weiner, did have a comment for concerned Twitter accounts everywhere, saying:

“Tony is great and thanks the crowd along the parade route for their warmth and he wishes everyone a very happy Thanksgiving,”

Although Miss Piggy hasn’t yet responded to the knight-in-shining-armor messages sent her way, parade viewers all over were certainly thankful for saving Bennett’s life and the Thanksgiving holiday distraction.
