    Sonic has quite a history and while it has featured some incredible highs it also includes some disasters. Some may remember Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1993 and the accident that occurred with a giant inflatable Sonic. For those who do not, high winds took a giant inflatable Sonic of course and into a lamp post which resulted in two injured people. The footage of this accident had never surfaced until now, over 25 years after the accident.

    Sonic the Hedgehog was at the height of his fame in 1993, on the back of a number of successful games the SEGA mascot was inescapable. Both Sonic and Sonic 2 were hugely successful games because of their fast gameplay and impressive graphics. Although this accident didn't damage Sonic's gaming reputation too much, and Sonic has continued to have very successful games, it was certainly shocking at the time.
