South Park: The Fractured But Whole Has an Easter Egg That Will Call You Out if You Cheat

You want to be a cheater like Tom Brady? Do ya?

South Park, for all of its 'take no prisoners' attitude, apparently draws the line at cheaters. Or at least won't pass up an opportunity to call you out on cheating in South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

In the newest South Park video game, the kids of South Park, Colorado ditch the fantasy elements of the first game in favor of superheroes. In an early portion of the game, your character must break into Cartman's basement using a keycode which you have to find hidden in his bedroom. However, as Kotaku discovered, if you're on a second playthrough or just looked up the password (the password is "Fuck You Mom" by the way) then a neat little easter egg pops up.

Cartman will appear dressed as Bill Belichick, head coach of the New England Patriots, and call you out as the Tom Brady-like cheater you are. A reference to the deflategate controversy where Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were accused of cheating against the Indianapolis Colts back in 2015. Something South Park made fun of in the show itself.

We gave South Park: The Fractured But Whole a positive score writing that, "Though it drags at times, The Fractured but Whole carries a sweet, twisted charm that makes it hard to resist if you're similarly twisted." A big surprise with the game was also how strangely inclusive it ended up being.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
