You just know that when someone saw the car they thought, "Hey, it's that car from that Geico commercial!"

Granted, it was an awesome commercial...

Cool, but I'd actually rather they made a Mach 5 balloon just to better its chances of appearing the next couple years, too.

The car is likely to tour around the world and could appear other places aside from the parade. A balloon would only be good for the parade. And there's still a chance of it appearing in future parades.

Of course what they really need is a full scale Gundam balloon. Of course everyone would probably think it's a Transformer.

What I wouldn't give to have a balloon of Johannes Krauser II (from Detroit Metal City) in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and have it bump groins with the Empire State Building.
