NBC Today‘s weather anchor Al Roker yelled at a man dressed as a stick of butter during the Thanksgiving parade on Thursday.
As the Butter Man walked into Roker’s shot, the weather anchor shoved him and shouted, “I hate to butter you up but you’ve gotta move on… Go on, get out of here you butter! Ah! I can’t believe it’s not butter!”

It wasn’t Roker’s only interaction with the Butter Man during the parade, with the man seemingly desperate to appear in Roker’s shots.

Al Roker just got accosted by an anthropomorphic stick of butter and had to shove him off screen before frantically cutting to commercial
I don’t understand why more people don’t watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
