Random Thought – The Simpsons Edition

I came across this feature on BuzzFeed a little bit ago (according to the publication date on the content, I was incredibly late to the party). Being a fan of The Simpsons, it caught my eye. I don’t know if you saw this: 21 Times The Simpsons Bizarrely Predicted the Future”? I got a chuckle out of it. But it is missing a prediction. That’s because the validation of this prediction only came to fruition recently:

The prediction was made during Treehouse of Horror XIX, where Homer Simpson kills celebrities so that “typcial Ad Men” can use their likeness in ads.

It's like Mad Men, but not. Actually, only the intro is.

Minus the killing, the Simpsons called it: deceased celebrities employed to advertise!

In conclusion, 22 times The Simpsons Bizarrely Predicted the Future!
