Broncos fill empty seats with 1,800 ‘South Park’ cutouts

They went down to Denver to have themselves a time.

With the coronavirus pandemic limiting fan attendance at sporting events, cardboard cutouts are in vogue. But the Denver Broncos took the fad to a whole new level on Sunday, putting cutouts of the entire town of “South Park” in the upper bowl of the stadium for its game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. There were more than 1,800 cutouts, according to ESPN, featuring characters from the Comedy Central series that began in 1997 and is based in a fictional Colorado town, and all of them were wearing masks.

Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny — along with Chef, ManBearPig and even Mr. Hanky — were all spread out across five sections of the stadium.

The Broncos reached out to Comedy Central about buying cutouts of the characters, per ESPN, which along with fan-purchased cutouts has raised $130,000 for local charities.

There were 5,700 actual fans in attendance to witness the Broncos’ 28-10 loss to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
