You know what the best part about all this election craze is going to be (yet no one is talking about it)? How FIRE South Park is going to be tonight. In 2008, less than 24 hours after his acceptance speech, South Park aired the episode “About Last Night” which not only depicted Barack Obama winning, but also included clips from his acceptance speech. It was one of the biggest moments in South Park history, and helped make it the cultural phenomenon that it is today. But as epic as that episode was, tonight is going to be even better.
Yesterday, South Park uploaded a preview for tonight’s episode on their various social media accounts. The 30-second clip was of PC Principal speaking to South Park Elementary. After going on a speech about finally having a candidate who will end sexism, misogyny, he finally introduces said candidate… Bill Clinton. However, this morning, the preview clip has essentially been erased from existence.
Based on the preview for Wednesday’s new episode, “The Very First Gentleman,” it appears South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were banking on Clinton, the “Turd Sandwich” beating Mr. Garrison, the “Giant Douche.” Not only has the preview been deleted, but the press release on Comedy Central’s website now leads to a “currently unable to handle this request” message.
Here is the synopsis for tonight’s episode, “The Very First Gentleman”:
The new administration has plans for Gerald on an all-new episode of South Park titled “The Very First Gentleman” on Wednesday, November 9 at 10:00 P.M. ET/PT on Comedy Central. PC Principal tries one more time to make peace between the boys and the girls. Meanwhile, Gerald comes face-to-face with the Troll Hunter.
Whatever tonight’s episode is about, it’s going to be hilarious, and give us exactly what we need right now: a good laugh.
