The Frinkahedron: Simpsons Become Reality
If you watched The Simpsons on March 26, you may have noticed a strange opening where real people re-enacted the opening of The Simpsons. You might have thought "Cool, life-action Simpsons!" And then you thought "Wait a minute, they don't really look like the characters." And you might have thought "Why does everything look so weird, kinda small, and not like Springfield at all." The answer, of course, is to blame the British. Turns out the British cable channel Sky One created the segment as a commercial for the new season of The Simpsons. The US version liked it so much, they put it into a real show. That's cool.
Bonus: If you missed it, check out the video at YouTube.
