Peter Gabriel appears (singing) twice in the American adult animated sitcom South Park.
Season 7 Episode 14
Stan tries to take control of a romantic situation by asking Bebe to talk to Wendy for him. She tells him to do the most romantic thing he can think of, and orders him to hold a boom box over his head and play Peter Gabriel. He chooses the very unromantic song, “Shock the Monkey”. Wendy gives Stan a guilty look from her window, and Token walks up to her. She looks down and walks away while Token shuts the blinds. This is a parody of the boombox scene in the 1989 movie ‘Say Anything’… in which Lloyd Dobler tries to win over his longtime crush Diane Court by holding up a boombox that’s blasting “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel.
Here Stan is definitely dressed as Rael though. Link to clip here
There’s a great scene on South Park where one of the kids serenades a girl with a jukebox, but he plays “Shock the Monkey” instead.
[Huge booming laugh] Yeah, that made me laugh too.
