South Park Exposes Lorde’s Shocking Secret
Last week, “South Park” included a scene in which Stan’s dad, Randy Marsh, dressed up like teenage singer/songwriter Lorde. After a SPIN Magazine blog post criticized the joke and episode, South Park responded with an ENTIRE EPISODE dedicated to Randy’s exploits as New Zealand’s favorite ingenue.
Included was this sequence mocking current music production software that can change any kind of recording into an instant, disposable, digitized pop song, showing Randy turning his bathroom ramblings into a polished Lorde song. The clip has gone massively viral this morning on Reddit, Facebook and elsewhere, demonstrating that, even in its 18th Season, “South Park” remains a potent cultural force.
