South Park is back and already causing a stir! At least this time it is people just laughing at what they did and not complaining about the show “crossing the line”.
Don’t watch this week show if you have Alexa you will have scrotum balls in your cart!
In the episode, titled ‘White People Renovating Houses’, Cartman falls in love with Amazon’s Alexa and every time he asks the device a question on the show, it’s loud enough to activate a viewer’s real life Alexa.
But Moritz wasn’t the only person to have his Alexa boot up when Cartman made a request.
People had very strange things like scrotum balls added to their shopping lists and alarm clocks set for 7am, which might have caused a very unwanted surprise in the morning.
It was a hilarious troll that demonstrates why South Park continues to be one of the smartest, yet crudest animated shows on the planet. While it started with silly jokes, it’s mastered the art of satire and parody that its rivals are yet to conquer.
According to BroBible: Last night’s South Park season premiere made endless jokes about Amazon’s Alexa and it took a few shots at the Google Home. Like millions of others, I was one of those people who purchased an Amazon Alexa on this year’s Amazon Prime Day. I actually dig it because it’s basically a speaker I can use to play music in the kitchen while cooking, and I can order any dog food/kitchen-related items I run out of by asking Alexa. South Park took some pretty hilarious shots at Amazon’s Alexa and the Google Home, but that’s not what this is about.
During an interview with LA Times, Trey reflected on the most recent episodes: “We fell into the same trap that Saturday Night Live fell into, where it was like, ‘Dude, we’re just becoming CNN now’. We’re becoming: ‘Tune in to see what we’re going to say about Trump’. Matt and I hated it but we got stuck in it somehow.”
Trey added: “I want to get back to Cartman dressing up like a robot and [screwing] with Butters, because to me that’s the bread and butter of South Park. Kids being kids and being ridiculous and outrageous but not ‘did you see what Trump did last night?’.”
