The season finale of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo beat out South Park, so the boys have taken on Alana Thompson and her mom June Shannon in an upcoming episode. Check out the preview clip below which is almost like watching an episode of the TLC show.
It was bound to happen and Honey Boo Boo Child and June Shannon have truly made it into the cultural mainstream now that South Park creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, have put them in an episode. It only took a handful of episodes before Saturday Night Live spoofed Alana Thompson’s Honey Boo Boo Child, and now the animated show that spoofs nearly everyone on the cultural radar has joined in. It doesn’t hurt that the show was bested by The Learning Channel (TLC) in the season finale of the hit reality show, so they’re capitalizing on it.
In the clip, Thompson and mom Shannon are shopping for a pig that’s got some reality show pizzazz, and possibly as a Glitzy 2, and it actually feels a little like watching the show. After that dumpster diving shopping episode, it’s hard for the South Park boys to go any more over the top.
The hit show has picked up another supporter, Life’s A Tripp and now Dancing With the Stars contestant, Bristol Palin, has jumped in to say how much of a fan she is of Honey Boo Boo. Now we’ll see if mom Sarah Palin follows suit to generate some press for herself again.
