PM wins South Park appearance
By politics.co.uk staff
Gordon Brown is to feature in an episode of foul-mouthed US animation South Park.
He follows in a long line of celebrities to feature in the show, which is now in its 13th season.
The episode in question will concern the credit crunch, with the prime minister coordinating global plot to steal “space money” from an alien spaceship.
In a script designed to mock UK-Icelandic relations, Mr Brown orders a nuclear attack on Helsinki after Finland threatens to tip off the aliens.
The sketch is designed to parody the use of anti-terror laws by the UK against a European ally to secure Britons’ investments in Iceland.
The episode will be screened later this year on Comedy Central.
US president Barack Obama previously appeared in a South Park episode entitled About Last Night in 2008, which aired the evening after his election victory.
