South Park’s season premiere aimed directly at Apple, will Android make a cameo?

South Park’s season premiere will air this Wednesday, and the episode seems to be mainly devoted  at making fun of Apple and its fans . I have a feeling not many Apple fans will appreciate that. On the other hand, I bet many Android fans will enjoy the episode immensely and probably watch it a couple of hundred times afterwards. According to the South Park website, the episode — named “HUMANCENTiPAD” — will revolve around:

Kyle is intimately involved in the development of a revolutionary new product that is about to be launched by Apple. Meanwhile, Cartman doesn’t even have a regular iPad yet. He blames his mother.

Making fun of Apple is starting to become rather common practice among comedians these days, and we can’t say we’re sad about it. However, while making fun of Apple is all fun and giggles, we’d really love to see Android make a debut in the South Park episode. I know a couple of Android fans who will have a heart attack if Android saves the day at the end of the episode. Anyhow, it’s always nice to see our lovely, cuddly, favorite green robot gaining popularity among mainstream consumers. How many of you will be watching this episode? If you are, keep an eye out for Andy.

    Making it into a South Park episode means that you have truely “made it.” My fingers are definitely crossed that Andy gets an honorable mention!

    Anyone who knows what the Human Centipede is (that the HUMANCENTiPAD spoofs along with the ipad) can’t expect a happy ending to this.

    And unless the episode does mention Android it is in no way a sign of Android’s growing popularity among mainstream consumers. It is for Apple’s however.

    I’ve followed South Park for a while and it would be against their philosophy to give an android plug. Hard to explain exactly what I mean in a response here, but any hardcore South Park fan will know what I mean.

      You mean that they really only care about making fun, and they don’t care much for plugging?
