Because I’m white and therefore privileged, I’ve trademark copyrighted ‘Mega Harry’ as I’m bound to get lots of publishing offers, TV and film offers, Vogue covers, CEO offers, charity ambassador offers, podcast deals etc; unlike man-of-the-people Prince Harry and his (first ever self-portrayal) ‘woman of colour’ Princess wife; although Africa and Asia are full of ‘of-colour’ royalty, with many having mansions and estates in UK/Europe, like Mega Harry’s in California!
No, not really TMCed; just another satire/parody (trademarking and suing everything) element South Park could have used; as well as Meghan’s obsession (or just money-spinner?) with being ‘of colour’. I watched ‘The Hunt‘ recently (on Film4 in UK) which satirises the American ‘culture wars’ between the ‘liberal elite left’ and ‘working-class whites’ well.
I myself, kind of grew up like Lynyrd Skynyrd: too long-haired liberal for rednecks, and too redneck for the ultra-liberal urban elites! On the environment and animal welfare I related to them not wanting concrete spoiling their nature, but didn’t like all their hunting!
South Park Series
After turning the South Park real one-off episode into a fantasy trilogy over the last couple of weeks with the Mata Hari spying spin-off I think there’s enough material for more episodes from the above material.
However, the episodes also need more substance to make them better, as South Park often has sub-plots within episodes. Where the real South Park residences would fit in I don’t know; Harry teaming up with Cartman?
British Spying Themes
There was of course ‘Harry’s Game‘, a 1982 spy thriller, but that plot doesn’t really fit Harry and Meghan’s story. That would have needed Harry going on a spying mission against UK’s adversaries; instead of his own family and the UK!
I think the ‘Wagatha Christie’ case is more suitable for the Mega Harry story. That was when two footballer WAGS (wives and girlfriends) went to war over social media leaks. One apparently sent messages to select people to see who leaked it to the media. After apparently exposing the ‘culprit’ it resulted in a lengthy court case.
Real Spy Games and International Relevance
I was thinking the royal family could have done that with Harry and Meghan. Told them something like they (UK royals) were planning to invade USA and make it British again, and see if they passed it on!
Or something more believable if they really meant it, as spy agencies have been doing for a long time; and famously for the D-Day landings in WW2 (Operation Bodyguard); reminds me of Harry wearing Nazi uniform and his UK taxpayer-paid security demands being other themes South Park could use!
I don’t know if ‘Wagatha Christie’ was big enough news in the USA to resonate with an American audience; especially as it was on the same time as the Depp v Heard one; so I’ll leave it to the real South Park experts! And don’t think they’ll hear of this anyway!!
If you like the above satire/parody from a Comms Studies PhD graduate; the school of spying!; there’s plenty more in XaW Files: Beyond Humanity (X-Files); and even a little more in Werewolf of Oz (Wizard of Oz) on Amazon; which also has loads of great films. TV and documentaries free with ads on their freevee channel (I haven’t been paid to write that!!).
