Friendless South Park Character Gets Facebook Page

by Dan Koelsch

We really should have seen this coming. Last week we discussed a recent episode of South Park that covered, among other things, Facebook. In the show, a character is introduced named Kip Drordy. Kip has no friends until Kyle kindly adds him. The episode revolved this fake friendship, and now you can be Facebook friends with Kip too. Find out more after the break.

At the end of last week’s episode, Kyle finally drops Kip as a friend, but in the process (watch the show to find out how) Kyle gets all of Stan’s 100,000+ friends. So, of course, a fan how now set up a page for Kip, likely in hopes of matching that 100 thousand total. OK, so technically it’s a Fan Page, not a profile, so you can only be his fan, not his friend. Either way, you can now “Like” all his status updates just like Kyle!





The page is a success, since there are over 130,000 fans as of this writing. It’s worth checking out for the hilarious pictures fans post and the character-accurate elements of the page like the status updates. What’s interesting is that the page was created the day BEFORE the episode aired. Since it’s not affiliated with the Comedy Central show (according to our story source Mashable), it shows how dedicated fans are to the series. For a better idea of Kip’s character, take a look at the clips below.
