You know something's amiss when the hosts of the Rose Bowl Parade describe the OU band, saying "Norman Oklahoma is a small town where the cows are smarter than the people".
And it got worse from there. Or funnier, depending on whether you recognized the parade hosts, Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan... aka Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon.
Amazon Prime pulled this giant stunt and angered viewers who DIDN'T recognize the comedians...
#AmazonPrime whatever you were smoking when you thought #CordandTish was a good idea......it wasn't. They're rude, disgusting and quite frankly insulting to most of the parade participants. #getsomeonenew #roseparadedeservesbetter— Jessi (@jessi_J72) January 1, 2018
Someone please tell Cord Hosenbeck to stop trying to be funny! He is obnoxious and ruining the Rose Bowl Parade experience for Amazon prime watchers!— JEAN MILLER (@jemiller1983) January 1, 2018
Others totally got the joke--
First in a long time that I enjoyed watching Rose Bowl Parade on TV. #CordandTish were freaking hilarious!!! The Amazon Prime reviews were hilarious. I guess they didn't know it was satire. Can't wait for 1/1/2019!— ServantLeader918 (@mam_white) January 1, 2018
(Side note: The show got more than 1400 one-star reviews, complaining that the hosts ruined the parade)

I never want to watch another parade if it's not hosted by #CordandTish. This has struck the perfect balance of subtle absurdity and total outlandishness. #RoseParade #SNL pic.twitter.com/Uj4cTO5pj1
The Rose Parade was always boring as paint drying... But today with Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon hosting it as Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan is everything you think it is! Two brilliant improv actors riffing for 2 hours! Thank you Amazon Prime Video. pic.twitter.com/lYMLJZnbN8— Joe Talaiver 🌐 (@jtalaiver) January 1, 2018
Here's more, because you know you want it. Or at least you think you do. You might. Anyway, here it is--
