Marc Jacobs has teamed up with Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park on his next round of t-shirts for NYU's Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative Group. Like all of Jacobs's melanoma shirts so far, the tees feature nude celebrities—in this case, Cartman, Randy Marsh, and Butters—along with the slogan "Protect Your Largest Organ." Sadly, Kenny won't be included; Parker and Stone said there was no way they were letting anyone strip him of his famous coat.

It's only fair for Jacobs to feature Parker and Stone's characters on his shirts, because back in November they made him a character on their show. He told The Cut the cameo was "probably the greatest honor of my entire life so far."
