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

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.
