Update at 10:50 a.m. ET: The ceremony's over, so we'll remove the video player we had here earlier.

For the record, the No. 1 turkey pardoned this year is named Apple. The alternate is named Cider. According to the White House, this is the 63rd anniversary "of the National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation."
