Rush reference in South Park: The Stick of Truth video game
South Park: The Stick of Truth is the latest video game based on the long-running Comedy Central animated series South Park, and was released this past week. It's a role-playing style game where players can unlock access to the great nation of Canada - the O Canada level - at one point. The Canada portion of the game is rendered in 8-bit, Ultima-style and a Rush poster can clearly be seen on the wall in one of the houses as shown here (thanks G2112). South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are both friends of Rush, and a cartoon version of the band appeared in the South Park episode Royal Pudding (Season 15, Episode 3) as shown here. They also created a special Lil' Rush intro video to Tom Sawyer featuring the South Park gang that was used on the Snakes & Arrows tour as seen here.
