South Park is so dedicated to getting their show up in time every Wednesday, they’ve even done things like make two election episodes based on who won the Romney vs. Obama fight in 2012. Now, they’ve missed their air date for the first time in the show’s history for reasons beyond their control.
Two nights ago, their studio lost power. That will shut down the production of pretty much any business, and the South Park team posted this as an official announcement about the disaster:
“On Tuesday night, South Park Studios lost power. From animation to rendering to editing and sound, all of our computers were down for hours and we were unable to finish episode 1704 “Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers” in time for air tonight. Trey Parker said, “It sucks to miss an air date but after all these years of tempting fate by delivering the show last minute, I guess it was bound to happen.”
GOTH KIDS 3: DAWN OF THE POSERS will air next Wednesday, October 23rd. Tonight there will be encore, Live-Tweeted presentation of Scott Tenorman Must Die at 10p EST.”
Well, at least we got one of the best episodes of all time instead, so that’s something. The picture below is what it looked like when the lights were out, and there are a few more you can check out here that are pretty funny.
