Tracy Morgan is now your co-grand marshal of the Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade in Fort Lauderdale.
What could possibly go wrong?
Actually, this is pretty fantastic news, seeing how he's replacing Tori Spelling.
Yes, the one from 90120. Yes, she's still alive.
Apparently Spelling was originally slated to be the co-grand marshal for the parade but stepped down without much explanation.
The parade organizers are also mum on why Spelling is being replaced.
And that's quite all right.
Because going with a fantastically unpredictable comedian who is literally capable of anything is not safe. And that's just what makes the decision to go with Morgan an awesome one.
Also, there's this: Tracy Morgan is, you know, relevant.
Morgan will be sharing the grand marshaling with IndyCar racer Ryan Hunter-Reay.
The event, as usual, is expected to draw about a million people throughout the New River and Intracoastal this weekend.
Winterfest kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Fort Lauderdale.
