‘South Park”s Cartman Spoofs Logic’s “1-800-273-8255″

Twenty years after debuting on TV, it’s clear that South Park has no interest in holding anything sacred. That’s a point the show’s writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone proved once again in the second episode of season 21, a story that finds Eric Cartman parodying Logic‘s suicide-prevention-themed Everybody single, “1-800-273-8255.” 

In the new episode, Cartman’s classmates are campaigning to raise awareness for distracted driving by creating posters and handing out flyers to further their cause. It’s at that point Cartman pops up in the hallway to perform a song about preventing suicide—specifically his own.

Whereas Logic’s track is an empathetic one that focuses on the struggles of others, Cartman’s rendition of the track—featuring a “1-800-273-8255″-esque instrumental—is an exercise in narcissism. “I’ve been feeling sad, I’ve been being sad/I can’t talk to my mom, I don’t even have a dad/I can’t go home, what is living for/My heart screams, I don’t wanna live no more,” he raps in the hallway.

While Cartman’s clearly rapping about suicide, it’s implied that his inflated sense of importance has led him to threaten to kill himself for the sake of gaining more admiration from his elementary school peers. It’s a classic element of the South Park story.

In case there was any doubt about Cartman’s song being a Logic parody, peep the black hoodie he’s wearing in the episode. It’s reminiscent of the one Logic wore when he performed “1-800-273-8255″ at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. He even gives a brief speech in the same vein as the one Logic gave at the show.

Check out Cartman’s “1-800-273-8255″ parody below. When you’re done with that, watch South Park‘s recent parody of “Humble,” by Kendrick Lamar.
