South Park Goes Viral?

Last Wednesday’s episode of South Park spoofed YouTube and the viral video phenomenon. Remember the sneezing baby panda, and the Chocolate Rain guy, and a bunch of other geeks? They’re all here. The episode is available in its entirety here.

It’s interesting in a way because the story goes that South Park itself actually started as a viral Christmas card. A Holly wood somebody asked Parker and Stone to create a video Christmas card to send to his co-workers. I believe Mr. Hanky had his first appearance in that video and the Hollywood guy sent it around to all his friends and so on and so on. Viral at its finest. Next thing you know, you have a show that’s been on for over 10 years and is still relevant and funny. That’s an accomplishment in itself.
