Obama, McCain Get The South Park Treatment

By Karl Klockars in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 6, 2008 7:40PM


We knew that the turnaround time for episodes of South Park was next to nothing, but they really must have busted their asses to get this episode put together for last night. (We'd also like to see the one they made in the event of a McCain victory - will that ever show up as a DVD extra?) We won't spoil the whole thing for you, but they managed to weave together Tuesday night's speeches, a ninjaesque Sarah Palin and a plot involving a caper a la - well, just watch.

If you missed it, it's online right here at South Park Studios right now, and if/when it makes it to Hulu we'll embed it for your viewing pleasure [the episode also re-airs tonight on Comedy Central at 9 p.m.]. When do you think Trey and Matt will redo the soundtrack from "Team America" to something like "Obamica, Fuck Yeah?"

Also: Just for shits and grins, we've chopped up the audio of Stan's dad screaming about Change and uploaded it here - we figured it'd make a good ringtone, so point your phone's browser that way and download to your heart's content.
