South Park Celebrates 25th Anniversary With A New Spin On This Classic Chef Song

In honor of “South Park’s” quarter centennial, South Park Studios has released an orchestral performance of the song “Chocolate Salty Balls,” first sung by Chef (the late Isaac Hayes) in a Season 2 episode by the same name. That episode featured Chef venturing into business as a confectionery baker, and the balls in question are indeed cacao-based delights with a dash of sea salt, despite whatever alternative interpretation the lyrics may invite.

With a swinging trumpet line and a full string section, the new rendition of “Chocolate Salty Balls” features Jeff Kready on the lead vocals, backed by a sublime chorus as he implores listeners to “suck, suck, suck on my balls.” It’s truly a delightful performance, made all the more uproarious by the juxtaposition of musical talent on display with the suggestive subject matter, and almost nobody in the orchestra seems able to keep a straight face for the entire time.

Of course, musical numbers have been a big part of “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s legacies. They went on to write and direct “South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut,” as well as the political satire “Team America: World Police,” both of which were musicals, and even created the Tony award-sweeping Broadway show “The Book of Mormon.” Despite their success, they’ve stayed at the “South Park” helm for its entirety, and Season 25 of the show will premiere on March 2 on Comedy Central.
