Hysterical New Video of Trey Parker Recording "South Park" Voiceovers with Daughter is Adorable
Trey Parker, co-creator of "South Park" posted a video series on Instagram this week of a hysterical and adorable (and professional) moment with his 10-year-old daughter Betty.
The caption of the video reads "Betty is sleeping in daddy's office on a Tuesday all-nighter. Betty's character is Betsy."
The all-nighter on Tuesday nights before the Wednesday air date is quite typical for the "South Park" production team. In 2012, they released a documentary about how they put together an episode from nothing to air time in six days, aptly titled "6 Days to Air." Eleven years later, great things are still happening at the last minute at South Park Studios in the Culver West neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The father-daughter duo were recording voiceovers for episode three of season 26, "Japanese Toilet." In the episode, Randy Marsh buys a super pricy toilet to make the townspeople jealous of him. The gloating causes Randy's son Stanley to be harassed by his classmates. Enter, Betsy, a fellow classmate.
"Must be nice, did you know some people don't even have a place to live?" Trey says in the video while in the studio with Betty. He then looks at Betty who repeats her father word-for-word, inflection-for-inflection.
"Must be nice, did you know some people don't even have a place to live?" Betty then says.
"Dick face," Trey says.
"Dick face," Betty then says.
They share a laugh.
"How about caring for something that matters, shit head," Trey says.
Betty snickers with her dad before regaining composure.
"How about caring for something that matters, shit head," Betty says.
Then they re-do the line, replacing "shit head" with "b#tch."
The Instagram video is worth a visit. And season 26 is giving plenty of laughs to longtime fans.
