The South Park episode ?Oh, Jeez? that aired this week had to be quickly rewritten by its creators to reflect President-elect Donald Trump?s victory.
Originally, the seventh episode of the series was supposed to be titled ?The Very First Gentleman,? a reference to Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton?s husband Bill. The creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker predicted that Clinton will win the election.
A clip of the said election was teased earlier this week. After the results of the elections were released, the writers of the show were caught off guard.
SouthPark Script Rewritten
South Park?s script, unlike any other cartoon?s, is written just one week before it airs. This is to ensure that they can poke fun at the latest headlines. In fact, in its 19th and 20th seasons, they have featured several ridicules on both Clinton?s and Trump?s campaigns.
This is why when the new GOP candidate has won, the writers had to make quick changes to the episode?s script within 24 hours to reflect on the immediate aftermath of Trump?s win.
The episode was titled ?Oh, Jeez? a reference to thee catchphrase of the show?s Donald Trump ?Mr. Garrison? and probably everyone?s shock on the turn of events.
In 2008, Stone and Parker correctly predicted the election. They were able to deliver a memorable episode. Election stories have fueled some of the show?s comedic gold, like the ?Douche and Turd? a week before the 2004 elections.
