This is too freakin’ rich.
The most recent episode of South Park centers on Guitar Hero, and there are a bunch of hilarious bits throughout the show: Kyle and Stan are signed to a record deal based on their virtual version of “Carry on My Wayward Son;” Stan’s dad, who plays actual guitar, is scoffed at by Cartman—“Real guitars are for old people”—and discovers he’s awful at the game; after hitting the bigtime, Kyle succumbs to the pressures of rockstardom and moves on to the game Heroin Hero, a “first person shooter,” with two outstretched arms and one hand clutching a syringe as a pink dragon—who you chase but never catch—taunts the player in a cartoon voice.
The four clips above are pretty much the whole episode. Watch ‘em while you can before Viacomm takes them off YouTube.
