WATCH | Every Christmas season, department stores in New York City aim to create the most eye-catching holiday window displays, and Barneys just might have won this year. Their 3-D "South Park" window features all of your favorite characters, and they actually converse with each other.
This year, the theme for the window displays at Barneys is "Love, Peace, Joy," intending to prompt those three emotions for viewers. And how better to bring joy to people than with "South Park"?
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the co-creators of the show and the voices behind most of the male characters, collaborated with Barneys on the Madison Avenue display. The design was inspired by the opening scene of "A Christmas Story."
It will remain up until January 3 at the Barneys flagship location.
If you have a chance to see the holiday window in person, it's definitely worth it.
The talking characters are drawing quite the crowd outside of the department store. While many people specifically seek out New York City's Christmas window displays each season, this one is catching the attention of casual passers-by.
As you view the display, the characters are meant to be looking into a department store window too, pointing out all of the toys that they want this year. "Dude, there are so many things I want," says Cartman.
"Why do you think stores decorate their windows like this for the holidays?" wonders Stan. Cartman responds that they "want people to come inside and buy stuff."
The display then pokes fun at Barneys, with the characters discussing how "clothes suck," especially expensive clothes, like "$80 shirts."
Fans are excited to see Cartman, Stan, and other beloved characters in the window.
We think Barneys can go ahead and mark this holiday window down as a win.
