Comedy Central’s ‘South Park’ franchise is one that never disappoints on the comedy front. During the show’s eighteenth season, Stan’s father Randy adopted an alter-ego personality that’s dedicated to the New Zealand singer-songwriter.
While Randy struggled with his personality over the course of five episodes (“Gluten Free Ebola”, “The Cissy”, “Handicar”, “Freemium Isn’t Free”, and “#REHASH”), his personification into Lorde is one that has definitely made wavelengths among the intersection between music and television. However, the funniest clip featuring Randy’s alter-ego involves a musician’s battle with Iggy Azalea.
Once Miley Cyrus performs for the people of South Park, Nicki Minaj, Azalea, and Randy-as-Lorde argue over the true definition of a pop star. Iggy chimes in during Randy-as-Lorde’s press interview, leading them to fight on live television. While the five episodes deal with Randy’s transition, the show’s interpretation of today’s hottest pop stars is one worth binge watching. Watch all the seasons of ‘South Park’ here.
