Please let Wednesday's 'South Park' tackle Odd Future

June 8, 2011 | 12:49 pm

No word on whether or not the act farting over some electronic beats in the above clip is inspired by local media hip-hop obsession Odd Future, but after viewing this brief clip, parallels could be drawn. The line between shock value and artistry is one "South Park" knows well, and the loud-mouthed members of hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All have what many have harrumphed as an unhealthy obsession with rape, death and homosexual slurs. 

A Comedy Central spokeswoman said the network sees the episodes when they air, and a quick holler to a South Park Digital Studios employee didn't result in any gossip. But a few things are clear: Odd Future likely isn't singing about Harley drivers when it uses verboten words, and "South Park's" Randy Marsh could stand in for any number of music crits, a number of whom may or may not be fearful of appearing out of touch.
