Trey Parker and Matt Stone Say Acid Trip Was Behind Drag Appearance at 2000 Oscars
When Matt Stone and Trey Parker were nominated for an Oscar in 2000 for “Blame Canada,” the epic song from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, they showed up at the award ceremony wearing skimpy dresses that were previously worn by Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow. But apparently the dresses weren’t a comedic choice or a social statement about a female’s role in Hollywood. Nope, it was just the result of a bad acid trip.
On Jimmy Kimmel last night, the South Park creators admitted that they took acid before walking the red carpet at the 2000 Oscars.
“We thought of it the week before. And when the day came and we were just so nervous that we decided not to do it… But then we were like, ‘let’s take a little bit of acid.’ So we did that and of course an hour later we were like, ‘We have to wear the dresses.’”
It was pretty obvious that Stone and Parker were on some sort of drug at the 2000 Oscars. The Huffington Post reports that after they dressed in drag on the red carpet, Stone and Parker appeared on Letterman to explain the incident, but the show wouldn’t let them use the word acid. Parker told Letterman that they “were just Sheening our heads off.”
Well, now we know what sheening means.
Here’s the video from Jimmy Kimmel.
Does it matter if Trey Parker and Matt Stoner were on acid instead of cocaine? Does your opinion change about them in anyway?
