South Park Riffs on Facebook, Finally

southparkfacebookThis week’s South Park is entitled “You’ve Got 0 Friends” and will deal exclusively with that special social phenomenon so dear to our hearts, Facebook. The episode will air on Wednesday and involves Kyle struggling to find friends on Facebook after friending the “wrong” friend. A preview clip, “I’ve Got Nobody”, is shown below.

SouthParkStudios has got the official description of the episode:

Kyle “friended” the wrong person and now all of his old friends are deserting him. His situation is desperate. Kyle looks for help from the one person who has always been there for him.

The last time South Park parodied an internet phenomenon it won an Emmy award for the episode. Titled “”Make Love, Not Warcraft” and parodying the popular online game, the episode garnered the South Park creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Performance. And if you haven’t seen it, please check it out for a good laugh (and a few groans).
