South Park's Black Friday Episode Highlights the Next-Gen War
Posted by Mike Zatorski
Since Ken wrote a great article about the whole console debate, we thought this would add a little humor to the topic. On Wednesday, Comedy Central aired the latest South Park episode, entitled "Black Friday." It portrays just how ridiculous the console wars really are.
The synopsis puts it this way: "Anticipation for the biggest shopping day of the year is building. The dark days of winter are coming and that can only mean one thing: the fight to be the first in the mall on Black Friday has begun. The boys prepare to battle the crowds the day after Thanksgiving to get the best deal on the new gaming systems."
They do a pretty good job at touching key points with both systems, but as you'd expect, it's more comedy than high politics.
