South Park Reworks Avatar as "Dances with Smurfs"
11.13.09 by REELZ
Even a month before it comes out James Cameron's Avatar has a big enough profile — and more than enough hype — to become a terribly tempting target for satire. The director, himself, has admitted that the movie is essentially a re-imagining of Dances with Wolves set against the landscape of an alien moon.
In the hands of the profane youngsters at South Park, this is easily translated into "Dances with Smurfs," in which a Glen-Beck-inspired Cartman befriends little blue people threatened by hostile developers anxious to get their hands on some precious, unobtainable smurfberries. Perhaps echoing the controversy over whether Cameron lifted the Avatar story from a vintage sic-fi novel, a version Cartman's own story ends up on the big screen, adapted without permission by none other than James Cameron.
Warning: As you'd expect from the South Park gang, the video includes some "blue" language.
