It's been over a year now since Samwell's infamous "What What (In the Butt)" exploded via YouTube, so by now you should not only be well-versed in the song's, um, lyrics, but also know that the popular video was created by a couple of Milwaukee's own.

Special Entertainment's Andrew Swant and Bobby Ciraldo are responsible for the hilarious visual journal through Samwell's hit and were pretty damn excited when last night's episode of "South Park" spoofed the video.

Check it out:

"The episode involved the South Park gang trying to save Canada by making a YooToob video called 'What What In the Butt,'" says Swant.

"We're freaking ecstatic!"

It's exciting news for us fellow Milwaukeeans, and good timing too. Samwell is at The Mad Planet this Saturday night.

 Here's the real deal, in case you've forgotten:


Julie Lawrence Special to staff writer Julie Lawrence grew up in Wauwatosa and has lived her whole life in the Milwaukee area.

As any “word nerd” can attest, you never know when inspiration will strike, so from a very early age Julie has rarely been seen sans pen and little notebook. At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee it seemed only natural that she major in journalism. When offered her an avenue to combine her writing and the city she knows and loves in late 2004, she knew it was meant to be. Around the office, she answers to a plethora of nicknames, including “Lar,” (short for “Larry,” which is short for “Lawrence”) as well as the mysteriously-sourced “Bill Murray.”
