Legendary guitarist Slash (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) was featured on last night’s episode of the satirical animated sitcom “South Park”.
In the episode, Clyde and Craig need to find Slash so that he can play at the event EA Sports is sponsoring. Clyde calls his parents when he cannot find Slash and they explain that Slash is make-believe, that he is actually based on the Dutch legend of the Vünter Slauche.
The episode ends with the boys learning that EA Sports has collected all of their profits. Eric is too depressed to care; he just can’t believe that Slash isn’t real. He also can’t accept the fact that someone he knew pretended to be Slash during his eighth birthday party.
“South Park” is an American animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. Intended for mature audiences, the show has become famous for its crude language, surreal, satirical, and dark humor that lampoons a wide range of topics. The ongoing narrative revolves around four boys — Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman and Kenny McCormick — and their bizarre adventures in and around the titular Colorado town.
“South Park” is currently contracted to produce 14 episodes in 2011.
