The Entire Town of South Park Fills American Football Stadium with Cardboard Character Cut-Outs

South Park just pulled off the best marketing stunt of the year in the build-up to its hour-long pandemic special on September 30.

In an attempt to liven up the Denver Broncos stadium and make it look like a full house, the entire town of South Park headed down to Empower Field at Mile High during Sunday’s broadcast of the Broncos game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

And when we mean the entire town, we mean just that: The stadium was filled with 1,800-character cutouts from Comedy Central’s popular show, based on a town in Colorado. And the best part? They’re all wearing masks!

And if that isn’t enough, the cutouts are part of the Broncos’ initiative to raise money for charity, according to CNN. So far, the team has raised $130,000.

The team originally made 1,000 cardboard cutouts available for fans to buy priced at $100 each with all net proceeds going toward Denver Broncos Charities during the season opener.

In case you are wondering why Denver, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are both Broncos supporters, having grown up in Colorado and gone to the University of Colorado, Boulder, which is where they met and created the hit TV series. On the show, which is set in the titular fictional town in Colorado, the characters are also Broncos fans, and the team is often mentioned.

South Park is broadcasting their hour-long special based around the pandemic on Comedy Central in the US on Wednesday.

According to South Park publicity, the pandemic episode revolves around Randy coming to terms with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak as the on-going pandemic presents continued challenges to the citizens of South Park.

The show’s 24th season premiere date hasn’t been announced but we expect an announcement soon.
