‘South Park’ Returns With Regular Season Episodes, Skewering Matt Damon and Cryptocurrency

South Park has returned with its first regular-season episode since 2019 — and it wasted no time in ridiculing Matt Damon and his latest Bitcoin ad.

The boys’ fourth-grade class loses their right to wear their PJs to the school’s pajama day in Wednesday’s season 25 opener “Pajama Day” on Comedy Central, throwing the class into a spiral. And, predictably, the citizens of the town become engaged.

A recurring joke in the show roasts Matt Damon over an already mocked Bitcoin advertisement he featured in. The Oscar winner compares becoming a crypto investor to a variety of human success milestones in the random segment. “Fortune favors the bold,” Damon concludes.

Before the show becomes meta and observes that jokes about the commercial are already antiquated, there are a couple more digs at Damon over the advertisement.

Due to the epidemic, South Park, like most other shows, was forced to take a break from normal weekly episodes. Despite the show’s weekly break, Parker, Stone, and their team were able to make a handful of hourlong specials and two made-for-TV features for Paramount+.
