South Park premiered its 14th season tonight and opened with a graphic reenactment of the confrontation between Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin, last Thanksgiving that started it all. Oh, yeah: turns out the reenactment was a video game!
After one Swedish "You cheater!" and Tigerspeak (aka wimpy) "You f*cking whore!" too many, the show cut to Cartman and Kenny playing the newest edition of EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 for Xbox as Kyle and Stan looked on curiously.
Hilariously, the game includes "Dodge," "Rage," and—naturally—"Swing," features. And if you want to lie to the cops, just hit "X."
Once again, South Park has managed to do what it's best at: taking a played out public controversy and making it relevant (not to mention entertaining) again. Kudos.
