Marc Jacobs Is A South Park Character And Has The Tat To Prove It

marc-jacobs-bang-ad-1
Forget the CFDA accolades. Lose the legendary fashion lines. Screw the epic makeover and the random upcoming film role. Marc Jacobs himself will tell you he has one singularly immortalizing personal accomplishment: he's been animated on South Park. While we try really, really hard to imagine him sitting on his couch identifying who killed Kenny, we'll elaborate. At the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in NYC last night, his surprise TV cameo had Jacobs gushing. "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."
Despite the fact that his character gets boiled to death at the end of the episode, Marc is thrilled to have been added to the ranks of the rude characters. And what does such a fashion god do to celebrate such an, ehm, epic role? Add the cartooned version of himself to his 28 piece ink portfolio, of course (We know the man loves a permanently animated funny: see one Sponge Bob Squarepants on his right bicep, an M&M, and two forearm pieces featuring other South Park characters.) Can we expect a South Park LV bag in our future? (The Cut)
