'South Park' Just Made Fun of Kanye West and His Dead Mom Again
The latest stab at Kanye's 'Only One' videogame comes via the new trailer for 'The Fractured But Whole'
Published Sep 22, 2017A little over a year ago, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone provided an E3 audience with some biting mockery of Kanye West's likely never-to-be-released Only One mobile game. Now, that mockery has become reality as part of a new trailer for their own game South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
In the trailer, which has little to do with any actual gameplay, Seaman and the New Kid are seen helping a gold chain-sporting gay fish (a.k.a. Kanye) get his mother into heaven. Of course, like in West's videogame trailer, the fish's mother is riding atop a unicorn, which farts its way through a Flappy Bird-style course of marble columns before making it to the heavenly gates.
In June of last year, Parker and Stone jokingly told an E3 crowd their game was about "a gay fish in South Park, and he loves fish sticks, and the gay fish actually wants you to help him get his mother into heaven, so you get to journey up and help this little gay fish get his mom into heaven."
For those uninitiated, Parker and Stone first took aim at Kanye in 2009 with the episode "Fishsticks," in which the rapper doesn't understand a widespread joke and refuses explanation on grounds that he is "the voice of a generation" and a genius. Of course, the comedic pair then went on to bust his balls several more times in the show.
You can watch the trailer in the player below. South Park: The Fractured But Whole arrives October 17, and is harder to play if your character is black.
