Top 10 Another South Park Celebrity Impersonations


In this little mountain town, no celebrity is safe. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’re counting down our picks for Another Top 10 South Park Celebrity Impersonations.

For this list, we’re looking at another group of celebs that this hit show has satirized, poked fun at, and in some cases just downright destroyed with its visceral sense of humor. Also, be sure to check out our original list of South Park impersonations.

#10: Phil Collins

Let this be a lesson to all future musicians: should you ever find yourself competing with Trey Parker and Matt Stone for a Best Original Song Oscar, then do yourself a favor and pull out, because the consequences for beating them won’t be to your liking. Genesis singer Phil Collins learned this the hard way after “You’ll Be in My Heart” won over “Blame Canada” at the 2000 Academy Awards. As revenge, the creators had Collins make an appearance in South Park, where he was depicted as a boring singer that’s constantly clutching his Oscar…which was later shoved where the sun don’t shine. Lovely.

#9: Cesar Millan

Despite being a short, fat kid, Cartman’s misbehavior can at times be a force of nature that not even his mother can stop. Who else, then, could possibly control the boy? Why, the Dog Whisperer of course! While he’s well known for his work with canines, in the world of South Park, Cesar Millan turns out to be the one person able to keep Cartman in check. How? By treating him like a dog. Despite the role reversal, Millan actually gets off rather easy, considering he’s portrayed in a positive light. He reined in and owned Cartman at every turn; how’s that for an achievement?

#8: Bill Donohue

After he made remarks that the Catholic priests who sexually abused young boys during the infamous 2009 scandal weren’t actually pedophiles but homosexuals, is it any surprise “South Park” decided to rip the president of the Catholic League to pieces? In order to maintain the secret that St. Peter was actually a rabbit, Donohue proceeds to murder and torture anyone who speaks out, spouting that it’s all in the name of God. By the episode’s end, he has a complete meltdown and overthrows the Pope, planning to kill anyone who’s in his way. Luckily, Jesus shows up in the nick of time, and puts an end to Donohue’s tyranny.

#7: Michael Bay

It may only be a short cameo, but that’s all “South Park” needs to discredit this director. After he’s brought in as a consultant on how to deal with a terrorist threat, all Bay can do is spout off ideas for special effects. The military council eventually calls him out on it and demand ideas instead, but of course Bay being Bay, he doesn’t know the difference. We didn’t think it was possible to burn a celebrity this badly in thirty seconds, but once again Matt Stone and Trey Parker find a way.

#6: Rob Reiner

He’s given us “The Princess Bride,” “Stand By Me,” and a few other good flicks, which in “South Park” just gets you portrayed as a fat, arrogant mess of a man who cares more about pushing his ideas onto people than actually following his own creed. When the boys blame the tobacco industry for their smoking, Reiner rallies the town against it… by means of creating a commercial that nearly kills the kids for the sake of realism. It’s probably not the best idea to take health advice from a man full of green goo.

#5: John Edward

In what has to be one of the most scathing renditions of a celebrity ever animated, Stan summarizes why this TV psychic is the ultimate douchebag. He’s immediately shown to be a fake, but the show goes to great lengths to explain how his supposed communication with the dead is extremely harmful not only for the grieving individuals who are suckered into his con, but also for humanity as a whole. As a person, Edward is shown to be insecure, self-absorbed and… yeah, just a total douche.

#4: James Cameron

He’s directed some of the most successful movie of all time, set a record by travelling deeper into the Mariana Trench than anyone else, and has one hell of a catchy theme song. On a mission to raise the bar of humanity, which dropped to new lows after we accepted Honey Boo Boo, Cameron once again descends into the darkness of the ocean, encountering Randy Newman along the way. While everyone else seems bored of his exploits, we can’t get enough of them. Oh, and congrats on being the only Canadian in South Park who doesn’t look like…well, every other Canadian.

#3: Caitlyn Jenner

Her transition from man to woman caused a media storm, so of course “South Park” was going to take a stab at her. Contradicting popular opinion, Kyle states that coming out as transgender doesn’t make her a hero, and that she’s getting caught up in her own publicity. As if that weren’t bad enough, she goes onto to become the Vice President of the United States after running alongside Donald Trum – uh, we mean Mr. Garrison. Given her new position of power, we’re sure to see much more of her wacky antics in the coming years. Here’s hoping she doesn’t run over any more pedestrians.

#2: R. Kelly

This is another quick cameo, but one that blends so well with the episode’s hilarious premise that we couldn’t bring ourselves to not include it. With Tom Cruise refusing to come out of the closet (literally, of course), the police get this R&B singer to try and persuade him. In a call-back to Kelly’s infamous opera, “Trapped in the Closet,” he tries to serenade Cruise to come out, only to end up locked up with him – and all this just adds another layer to the craziness of this episode. How big is that closet anyway?

Before we reveal our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Conan O’Brien
- The Notorious B.I.G.
- George Lucas

#1: Lorde


Randy Marsh is Lorde. That’s about the gist of it. Yet, somehow the way the show approaches the idea of Randy having a double life as the New Zealand pop star makes it work. While no one seems to be able to see through Randy’s flimsy disguise, which is limited to throwing on a dress and yelling out that he’s Lorde, there is also an odd sincerity to this running gag. Aside from the obvious joke of having Stan’s Dad pose as a young female singer, the way the characters speak so highly of her kind of makes make us want Randy and Lorde to be the same person. We’re sure she was flattered.
