South Park Deep Learning Episode Written By ChatGPT AI

The latest episode pokes fun at the artificial intelligence chatbot, with the writing credits shared between ChatGPT and show co-creator Trey Parker

ChatGPT, dude!

Over its first 25 seasons, anarchic animated TV show South Park has made a name for itself, poking fun at just about everyone and everything. In its newest episode, the crude comedy goes after ChatGPT. And here’s the kicker; the episode was written by Trey Parker and ChatGPT.

Season 26 Episode 4, Deep Learning, starts with Wendy considering breaking up with Stan after comparing Stan’s thumbs-up emoji text replies to the profound, empathetic texts Clyde writes to Bebe. Stan goes to Clyde for advice and learns he responds to Bebe using ChatGPT.

Clyde tells Stan that there are a ‘bunch of apps and programs you can subscribe to that use OpenAI to do all of your writing for you. People use them to write poems, write job applications, but what they’re really good for is dealing with chicks.’

Stan decides to try it out. Soon Wendy feels closer to Stan than ever and begins sharing her innermost thoughts. Hilarity ensues as Cartman, Butters, Clyde and Stan use ChatGPT to write essays and Mr Garrison uses it to grade them. However, Mr Mackey soon learns a student has been using AI to do schoolwork. A strange technician then comes to South Park Elementary, along with his falcon, to suss out the culprit.

Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have always used the series to poke fun at current events and new technologies. It is ironic, however, that the two chose to make fun of AI since they also own Deep Voodoo, a Deep Fake Studio that launched in 2020 during the lockdown. The studio recently received $20 million in funding from Connect Ventures.

Thus far, South Park’s Deep Learning episode has been well received, with an IMBD score of 8.3 out of 10.
