In a masterful bit of promotion, Comedy Central rolled out funny South Park mobile billboards, reminding everyone that the most caustic show on television has never been shy in its satire. These ads on trucks posted up right in front of landmarks associated with people and institutions South Park has mocked hardest.
One of the best uses of the mobile billboards finds South Park trolling Scientology once again by parking right outside of their giant blue building in Hollywood. To find out where the rest of the funny South Park advertisements are located, keep reading and take a stroll down memberberry lane.
South Park has been burning down pop culture and salting the earth with satire, drawing the ire of Kanye West, the Church of Latter Day Saints, and many more. But none of that seems to bother Matt Stone and Trey Parker. These funny mobile billboards feel like a victory lap for a show that never loses momentum, even when it feels like the show has hit its peak.
South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have a longstanding beef with the Church of Scientology. They even lost longtime Chef voice Isaac Hayes after going forward with an episode that combined R. Kelly's trapped in the closet with some allegations about prominent Scientologists Tom Cruise and John Travolta. Obviously the Church of Scientology wasn't happy about the billboard.
Casa Bonita references abound throughout South Park, as it was a favorite restaurant for both Stone and Parker in Colorado. Since the show has had nothing but good things to say about the restaurant (Cartman was even willing to kidnap Butters to sample their south of the border delights) you have to imagine the Casa was cool with the billboard.
When you really think about it, Raisins, the underage version of Hooters that exists in the show's continuity, is one of the grosser things South Park has ever done. Maybe? Granted, it's not cuttlefish diarrhea in a human centipede, but it is a bunch of 8-year-old girls flirting for money. Either way, Hooters is probably very excited to be getting some much needed publicity.
How could South Park send roaming billboards across the country and not post one up in the county that started it all: South Park, Colorado?
