‘South Park’ Celebrates Its 22nd Season With A Campaign To Get ‘South Park’ Cancelled 😳

South Park has been a staple of American culture since the satirical animated series premiered on Comedy Central in 1997. They’ve had 21 seasons so far and are about to premiere their 22nd. The only other two still-running American animated shows that have been around longer than South Park are The Simpsons and Arthur.

Well, to celebrate their upcoming 22nd season, the creators of the series, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, have launched a campaign to… cancel the series…

The bleak ad reads…

“America has reached a crossroads. What will we do next? #cancelsouthpark.”

And the official South Park Twitter feed is getting in on the action…

Some people were afraid that it might actually come to pass…

Others wondered if this was the latest piece of satire from the infamous satirists…

Others were seriously concerned and #dontcancelsouthpark began to trend…

Luckily, no matter what, the new season begins on September 26th.
