Video: Wii and 'South Park'

It's hard to wait for the Wii. A scant 17 days away. Is there any way to make the waiting go by faster? How about I freeze myself with the intention to be reanimated on the day of launch?


That's exactly what Eric Cartman did on the latest episode of 'South Park'. The episode opened with Cartman pacing outside of 'EV Games', trying to pass the time until November 19. Soon, he got the brilliant idea to freeze himself in the rocky mountains and, with the help of Butters ("oh, hamburgers!"), would thaw out on the day of launch.

Of course, that's not quite how it worked out...

Cartman doesn't wake up in his own time, but 500 years later. He discovers that he has entered a world of atheists, a movement that began at his very school due to an evolution teacher that ends up, shall we say, liking Mrs. Garrison. Most tragically, there is no Wii to be found. Hilarity ensues in this "To be continued..." episode.

It's interesting that the folks at 'South Park' chose to highlight the Wii over the PS3, which I assume, would be more attractive to Cartman because it's shiny, expensive, and has more raw processing power. It's obvious that the cultural tide is behind the Wii and that the cultural rip tide, which carries you out to the middle of the ocean to be eaten alive by sharks, is with the PS3. Nintendo got a great gift from 'South Park', cultural cache amongst young men.

It's also interesting that the episode features Evolution, almost like, Revolution...dun, dun, duuuun!
