'Smokey Bear looks buff': Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade's 'ripped' fire safety balloon is a thirst trap
Smokey Bear has always appeared in the public shirtless but this year many fans noticed it to be much sexier and hot
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Smokey Bear was marching across the streets of New York City during Macy's Thanksgiving parade on Thursday, November 24. Though the Bear appears shirtless every year for the thanksgiving celebrations, fans found him 'sexier' and 'hot' this year.
Though the bear is supposed to communicate an important message about wildfire safety, however, this year most enthusiasts noticed his looming, brawny, unsettling hotness, reported Daily Beast. Smokey Bear was initially created in 1944 by the US Forest Service and the Ad Council to promote forest-fire prevention. It was used to make public announcements regarding the dangers of unplanned wildfires. The Bear became people's favorite with the slogan, "only YOU can prevent forest fires."
However, even his slogans have changed over the time, Smokey’s original slogan was "Smokey Says – Care Will Prevent 9 out of 10 Forest Fires." In 1947, it became "Remember... Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires." In 2001, it was again updated to its current version of "Only You Can Prevent Wildfires," reported smokeybear.com. Meanwhile, Smokey Bear made his initial appearance at Macy's Thanksgiving in 1952 with the permission of Cooperative Forest Fire Prevention Program (CFFP).
Smokey Bear is designed by William Ludwick, a design engineer for the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. The balloon is ideally 58 feet tall, 30.6-feet wide, and weighed 420 pounds. 5,000 square feet of nylon fabric, as per MacysThanksgiving website. However, Bear had taken a break from appearing in the march from 1981 to 1995. It had made an on-and-off appearance since 1995. However, it has been appearing in the parade every year since 2019.
