If there was ever any doubt as to whether or not Marc Jacobs, he of the many cartoon tattoos, would be stoked to be made into a character on South Park, let it be known: it was the fucking highlight of his life. We know this because he couldn’t stop gushing about it at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards the other night. (To be fair, I wouldn’t either, if I were him.)
Via The Cut:
That was probably the greatest honor of my entire life so far. I am the Muscle Man Marc doll on South Park, and I joined the very great ranks of being one of Cartman’s toys — although I get boiled to death at the end of the episode…I think [South Park creators] Matt and Trey are just probably the two most brilliant people in the entire world, and it is definitely my favorite program on TV…Honestly, without hesitation, it is the greatest honor, I mean, way above and beyond the lifetime achievement award, beyond anything. It’s like, to be immortalized on South Park, I can die a happy man. That’ll be my next tattoo, the Muscle Man Marc from South Park.
It’s not narcissistic to get a tattoo of yourself if it’s a portrait of you done by the creators of South Park, right? (And/or: if your name is Steve-O?) Apparently, Jacobs had no idea he was going to “appear” on the show, and learned the good news from his tattoo artist Scott Campbell.
Will Muscle Man Marc send the normally schlubby Matt Stone and Trey Parker some designer duds to say thank you? It seems like it would be the polite thing to do. Plus, I would really like to see that.
