South Park Pens a National Anthem Parody for Colin Kaepernick, So If You Could Please Rise ...

By

South Park is throwing its little animated hat into the Colin Kaepernick fray on Wednesday night, with a season premiere that parodies the San Francisco 49er’s decision to sit out the national anthem. The show posted a preview of the episode’s parody national anthem last night, and with lyrics like “Wait, someone just took my stuff / I need to call the cops / Oh no, I just said cops are pigs,” and “Why did I listen to Colin Kaepernick? / He’s not even any good,” viewers can expect a mature, nuanced satire that explores all sides of a complicated American issue. Or, depending on how this thing shakes out, at least they can hear our new national anthem.
