South Park Pokes Fun at Black Friday, Next-Gen Console Wars

This week's episode of South Park pokes a lot of fun at Black Friday holiday sales, Game of Thrones, the frenzied behavior of deal-seeking mobs, and the foolishness of console wars. In the episode Cartman, Stan, and the gang set out to create a plan to get the Xbox One on Black Friday for cheap, but in the midst of preparing for the battle at the South Park Mall, a contingent of the kids balk at getting an Xbox One, instead opting to split off and fight against Cartman's faction because they think PS4 is better.

The episode is particularly clever because it makes fun of the idea of console wars and rolls marketing speak for both consoles into the episode as finely crafted insults. It also picks on South Park: The Stick of Truth, pre-orders, game delays, and a whole lot more. The episode ends on a cliffhanger which means you can expect more on the topic of Black Friday in later episodes.

If you missed it last night, you can check it out on the South Park Studios web site.
