The introductory sequence to South Park is meant to be a way to meet all the show’s various characters, right? Well, someone has gone and replaced them all with Siege operators. Yes, here is the South Park intro, but everyone is from Siege.
The video is jam-packed with Siege references and memes. The four original stars: Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman, have Siege operator stand-ins. Kyle, for instance, is replaced with Ash (in an FBI cap), while Thermite stands in for Stan.
Here’s where you get upset. Eric Cartman, the shitty member of the bunch, is Tachanka. Excuse me, what?
That’s right, you heard me. In this video, Tachanka plays the role of Cartman, the horrible, out of shape kid who always winds up being a lesson to the others about how you need to not be like him. He’s bad, and he’s not good at anything. Tachanka is our lord and savior and… wait, okay, I think maybe this does make sense.
Here’s the video:
It’s by YouTuber Jolly Pirate Donut, who says it took three months to make. Well done, mate.
As is the case with the original South Park intro, there are tons of Easter eggs and self-aware references to find. My personal favorite detail is probably Mute standing in for musician and South Park composer Les Claypool, the frontman and bassist for Primus. Primus actually was kind of a big deal back when – you know what? Never mind.
In any case, it’s super fun, and there are tons of clever Siege things and references to find in the ‘toon, so enjoy.
