Last night South Park aired the second installment of it’s superhero-themed “Coon and Friends” saga. At this point the story is getting ridiculous, but its still pretty funny. Last week they did a spoof of BP CEO Tony Hayward’s “I’m Sorry” commercials. This week they decided to stick with the same sort of theme but instead parody Lebron James’ “Rise” commercial.
