Thank you NBC director for staying on a close-up of Sandra Lee as Matt Lauer said "with arms flapping and neck bobbing, this old bird…"

I like that the camera was on Sandra Lee when Matt Lauer said "and here's the old bird that got away."

And the award for the worst Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade float narration and close-up goes to…Matt Lauer and the Today Show cameraman on duty. Here’s the video.
Memo to NBC: talking about the "old bird" (the turkey) when the camera is on Sandra Lee is not a good idea. Please sack the cinematographer.
