Tampa skyline gets animated on 'South Park' election episode

A cartoon version of Tampa's downtown skyline and riverfront popped up in an episode of Comedy Central's "South Park" on Wednesday.

The episode titled "Obama Wins" had Cartman making a mad dash through the nation's swing states as part of a scheme to steal ballots from polling places.

Although the animated skyline was simply captioned "Florida," it showed some very similar details to downtown Tampa's skyline, including dead ringers for the "beer can building," convention center and Hillsborough River.
