C’mon Jews… Show ‘Em Who Really Runs Hollywood


South Park poster "C'mon Jews... Show 'Em Who Really Runs Hollywood."

Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan for the image. Claude Brodesser-Akner provides the backstory:

A comedic capstone on all this comes via an full page, hardcover ad in today’s issue of Daily Variety. In a “For your consideration” Emmy Award ad for the infamous Tom Cruise “Trapped in the Closet” episode of “South Park,” the text reads, “C’mon Jews… Show ’em who really runs Hollywood.”

The genius of “South Park” strikes again.

Here, once again, some video excerpts of the Emmy-nominated “Trapped in the Closet.”
