Slash is Declared ‘Not Real’ in New ‘South Park’ Episode
In the May 25 episode, Clyde and Craig search to find Slash so that he can play at an event EA Sports is sponsoring. When Clyde can’t find Slash, he calls his parents, who squelch the idealistic character’s excitement with the news Slash is make-believe and that he is really based on the Dutch legend of the Vünter Slauche.
The episode wraps up with the boys learning that EA Sports has reached their goal for profits. However, Eric is too disheartened to care. He just wishes Slash was actually real. He also can't accept the fact that someone he knew pretended to be Slash during his eighth birthday party.
The real Slash recently spoke out about Van Halen's new album, claiming it's almost finished.
'South Park' was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show, which is intended for mature audiences, is currently under contract to produce 14 episodes in 2011.
