‘South Park’ gets in on Redskins name debate with commercial (Video)
Those of you who watched Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins may have seen a funny one-minute “South Park” commercial air during the fourth quarter. The ad spot, which promoted the show’s upcoming 18th season, poked fun at the Redskins name debate.
In typical “South Park” fashion, the geniuses behind the commercial focused on the fact that the Redskins are in danger of losing their trademark. Cartman started a company using the Redskins name and logo, which offended Daniel Snyder and company. Cartman’s argument was that he started the company because he has “total respect” for Snyder and his people.
You get the point. The commercial was a home run, and the fact that it ran during the Eagles-Redskins game was hilarious.
