The talk of the town is the latest South Park episode that parodies the video game Guitar Hero. This South Park episode is called “Guitar Queer-o” and can be viewed at http://www.southparkzone.com/episodes/1113/Guitar-Queer-o.html
Videos of the SP Guitar Hero episode were posted to YouTube but taken down because of complaints by ViaCom.
I have some family members that play Guitar Hero and are REALLY into it. Guitar Hero is a video game with a guitar like controller that has buttons you push in time with the video. The videos have the original songs from hit rock bands playing. The more in time you hit the buttons with the track the more the audience screams and you become a ROCK STAR.
Of course when I watched this played the first thing I thought was “Why don’t they learn to play a real guitar?” And that’s part of what this SP episode parodies. Playing real guitar is for old people. Guitar Hero is where it’s at.
Check out the South Park episode, it’s about the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.
