Ever thought to yourself, "Man, I like Mardi Gras parades, but I wish they were faster?" Well, thanks to us, your sleepless nights of wishing are over.

We seat-belted our camera to the rear end of our float during Friday night's Merchants' Parade and let it roll. Then we time-crunched it so that if you missed the parade, you can catch the entire 90-minute event in just over two minutes. And of course, we included the director's commentary.

Ain't technology grand?
