  • In the Behind the Blow film, it is stated that as a result of Asses of Fire, 8 million people died in the American-Canadian war. However, this is not true - while 8 million people could easily have died, Kenny got Satan to reverse things to be as they were before the war, so nobody actually stayed dead. Although the characters realized that despite most people dying had just came back to life. This is known by Mr. Garrison's line "I'm alive?" and Big Gal Al's "We were all dying and now we're fine. That's super." Also when Terrance stands up he asks "What the fuck's going on?" Obviously confused that he has just died and is now back alive. So the documentary could be referring to it caused 8 million people to die but just left out the act about Kenny wishing everyone back alive.
