The Kool-Aid Man is the primary mascot for Kool-Aid, a brand of flavored drink mix. The character has appeared on television and print advertising as a fun-loving, gigantic and anthropomorphic pitcher filled with cherry Kool-Aid and marked with a smiley face. He is typically featured answering the call of children by smashing through walls and furnishings an then holding a pitcher filled with Kool-Aid juice while yelling his catchphrase, "Oh yeah!"

History with the Macy's Parade

Kool-Aid man first appeared in the 2010 Macy's Parade as a ballonicle alongside Greg Heffley and Po from Kung Fu Panda. It featured him in his most current design, sporting a yellow short-sleeved blazer, a pair of blue jeans and a pair of sneakers, as he speeds down the Parade route on a red, yellow and lime skateboard, with the wheels being as big as trash cans. The balloonicle appeared in every Parade up until 2015, when he was retired.
