South Park Trolls Washington Redskins

The South Park gang is weighing in on the Washington Redskins name controversy in classic style.  TPM:

In the cartoon, the character Mr. Cartman’s company uses the name “Redskins” since thetrademark was pulled.

“I have total respect for you,” he says to Snyder. “When I named my company ‘Washington Redskins,’ it was out of a deep appreciation for your team and your people.”

The ad aired during the fourth quarter of the Redskins-Eagles game. It appears that it only aired in the Washington, D.C. area.

I was over at a friend’s house and we had the Redskins game on but we were only half paying attention, so I missed this. It’s quite well done.

    I laughed hard. As parodies go, it was pretty spot-on. I wonder how Joe Buck and Troy Aikman felt about being the conscript emcees for it, though…
