Good lord, what lunatic decided to add a "scream track" to this year's Disney Christmas Parade special?
You've heard of a "laugh track", well this was a track of screaming/cheering fans - obviously fake - dubbed over virtually every single moment of the parades & performances. It sounded like someone opening a door to a Justin Bieber concert, with shrieking tweens, and then closing it.
No matter what was happening on the screen, the screaming continued - until it simply became ridiculous. It spoiled the entire show. I finally had to turn it off, because it was just too much to ignore or tune-out.
What on earth were they thinking? Did they honestly think that a Disney Christmas parade would seem more exciting with a backdrop of constantly-screaming spectators? Instead, they ruined what is usually a perfectly good Christmas show.
Whoever came up with this horrid idea should be shot. (Well, at least demoted to the mail room.)
