Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of South Park, have always had something for Canada. That included a fascination with Rush, who appeared on the show a number of times over the decades.
It’s important to note that the guys in Rush had a tremendous sense of humour. Even Neil Peart–aka The Quiet One–appreciated a good laugh and was always happy to go along with a good joke.
In fact, this video often ran before Rush played “Tom Sawyer.”
And who could forget Rush’s rendition of “O Canada” with help from Terrence and Phillip from the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
And this bit was dark. Funny, but dark.
And it wasn’t just South Park. Rush were a reoccurring “guest” on Family Guy.
