After getting a call from old buddy Kyle Broflovski, he discovers their shared home town buddy Kenny McCormick had actually passed away. Stan goes back to South Park to pay his aspects to the departed pal who had actually been presumed dead numerous times ( for this reason the program’s supreme catchphrase: “Oh, my God! They eliminated Kenny!”) till ultimately diing, this time genuine.
In his home town, Stan explore a Super 12 Motel Plus where the clerk he speaks to delicately lets audiences learn about the function cryptocurrencies play in the long run, according to the program’s developers.
