The Energizer Bunny got a serious run for its money this Thanksgiving when JEFF KOONS‘ new “Rabbit” balloon stormed the streets of Manhattan in Macy’s annual turkey day parade. Based on what might be Koons’ most well known work-the stainless steel sculpture of the same name from 1986 that marked the debut of his “inflatables” series—the giant metallic dirigible brought a bit of Pop art to the masses on a grand scale.
