Ryan's World is a children's YouTube channel featuring Ryan Kaji, who is nine years old as of June 2020, along with his mother, father, and twin sisters. The channel usually releases a new video every day.
History with the Macy's Parade
With the Ryan's World franchise growing evermore, a balloon of its popular mascot (as well as Ryan's alter-ego), Red Titan, was commissioned the Macy's Parade Studio. Some time later, it was decided that this balloon would be set to debut in the re-imagined 2020 Parade. The balloon's dimensions are 42 feet high, 51 feet long, and 28 feet wide. Additionally, his cape requires fifteen gallons of red paint to cover up. This balloon also has the distinction of being the first-ever balloon in the Parade's history to represent a YouTube channel.
On the day of the announcement, the Ryan's World channel uploaded a YouTube video to hype up their viewers about the balloon, where the Kaji family made up a Macy's Parade of their own. This video also featured the many steps needed in order to complete the process of constructing the pumped-up superhero.
Currently, the Red Titan balloon is planned to make three appearances, and is to retire after 2022.
- Red Titan, along with Jeeves, are the only known balloons in the Parade that are based on internet characters.
