The popular television sitcom South Park featured on Comedy Central is extremely well known in today’s pop culture ever since Trey Parker and Matt Stone created the show in 1997. Over the last 24 years, the animated sitcom has aired more than 300 episodes and in more recent times, Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick have been dealing with an interesting world.

When Stan decides to go to Kenny’s funeral services, he spends his stay at the Super 12 Motel Plus and is greeted by a clerk who explains Stan booked one of the motel’s Mach 10 Super Plus rooms. “Now of course we only take bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies,” the motel clerk says to Stan. “Because… ya know — It’s the future — we’ve all decided centralized banking is rigged so we trust more in fly-by-night Ponzi schemes,” the Super 12 Motel Plus clerk added. “Yeah, I know,” Stan sighs and hands the clerk a card bearing the bitcoin logo on it with a QR code.
