Real video footage in South Park - good or bad?

Postby ré! » Tue Sep 26, 2006 5:20 pm

They don't do it often, but it's a very drastic change of pace and feel in the episode when South Park uses real video footage. Like when the Mr Hanky take-home set is for sale, or that silly GAY bike is advertised to the kids in Chinpokomon, and the terrorist in the Cartoon Wars episodes.

Do you think they add funniness to the show, or do you wish they'd just stick to animation?

They only use them when they have to, which is usually when it's very funny and necessary to get something across to the video.

I like 'em.

I think it's funny when they do that.They don't do it very much and whenever they do it's,always funny.So as long as they don't do it in all the episodes it will always be funny.

It's usually funny when they do it, which is not alot. But I loved the Wild Wacky Action Bike and Alabama Man commercials.

It's funny in moderation and they rarely use real life footage. I find it funny. Alabama man was hialrious.

I've approved of all live action footage in South Park to date, with the possible exception of the nut surgery in Garrison's Fancy New Vagina. That was slightly more gross than it was funny.

I find them funny, and sometimes enhance the experience.

I think that was footage of a monkey getting nutered,not of actual nut surgery.Though i could b wrong,because i've only heard on the interenet.

The one in "Tweek vs Craig" wasn't funny.

I didn't like it's use in 901, it was purely there for shock value. Otherwise it's been good, pretty funny little cut scenes too.

Yeah I've always assumed it's footage of something like that because whoever's getting snipped is way too furry to be a human.
