Cartman Plays Judas For Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Behold the glory of purposefully obnoxious product placement, as everyone's favourite obnoxious little fat-arse betrays the saviour for a copy of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

Last night's new episode of South Park, "Margaritaville", actually had a rather clever little plot, turning a commentary on the economic recession into a retelling of the story of Jesus. With South Park's economy in a shambles, Stan's dad Randy preaches the evils of frivolous spending, causing the citizens of South Park to wear bed sheet robes and stop buying ridiculous things. Cartman is pissed, because the new trend coincides with the release of "Grand Theft Auto IV" for the Nintendo DS.

The writers might have screwed up the game name the first time around, but they get it painstakingly right the next three times, as you can see in the clip below.
You can watch the full episode online right now at Comedy Central. Ironically enough, when I watched the episode early this morning, it was sponsored by Resident Evil 5.
