Logic‘s latest hit, “1-800-273-8255,” has taken him to his first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which he was extremely happy about, and now to the second episode of South Park‘s 21st season Wednesday night (Sept. 20).
In the episode, titled “Put It Down,” the instrumentals for “1-800” interrupt classmates spreading the word about distracted driving. Everybody stops as Cartman says over the loud speakers, “Hey guys! Let’s take a minute to talk about suicide prevention. There’s probably someone right now in this school thinking about killing himself, and it’s not funny. You better take it serious, or he might actually do it.”
Cartman then appears on screen in the hallway with a black hoodie, resembling the hoodie Logic has been wearing throughout his Everybody album campaign.
“I’ve been feeling sad/ I’ve been being sad,” Cartman raps, “Can’t talk to my mom, don’t even have a dad. I can’t go on/ What is living for?”
He is then backed up for the chorus, singing, “Eric, we don’t want you to die/ Eric, give life a try/ Eric, we don’t want you to die.”
The song lasts for about a minute and 20 seconds, where Cartman takes creative liberties making up lyrics about life being so hard and his girlfriend, before he imitates part of the speech Logic gave during his MTV VMAs performance of the song in August.
If anybody can get away with making light of suicide awareness, it’s South Park.
