South Park Season 25 Shows Its Love for San Diego in a Classy Way

So as the calendar inches closer to the February 2nd return of Matt Stone and Trey Parker's South Park to Comedy Central for its 25th season, the long-running animated series continues releasing a very cool and "classy" series of videos honoring the show's longevity. Over the past few weeks, the folks over at South Park Studios have been releasing videos of a 30-piece orchestra performing various covers of songs from the series, with the first two honoring the theme song as well as "Gay Fish" (from Season 13 Episode 5 "Fishsticks"). Following that, we had a chance to revisit what Cartman thought about "Kyle's Mom" (from S01E09 "Mr. Hankey, The Christmas Poo"). This time around, we jump ahead 15 seasons for a song honoring that "special love" for the home of SDCC.
