I was watching FX the other week to watch one of my new favorite shows (The Strain) when I saw one of the coolest Simpsons commercials EVER. All week I searched and searched for it to share with you dear readers when lo and behold, I realized it was on one of my Liked Facebook pages all along in perfect quality. Click more to see the amazingness.
I think the tag line the page writers came up with says it all. “Total D’oh-vastation”. The Facebook page alone has over 74 million likes. That’s a lot of people that could be doing nothing but watching The Simpsons. I’m one of those lovers of dystopian futures, zombies, pandemics, etc. so this commercial just hit me exactly right. For more info on the FXX marathon, check out Alissa’s post here.
In fairness, I have to give a shout out to The Simpsons Facebook page. Where Oogle and MyTibe failed, you came through. There’s lots of great stuff on the page (www.facebook.com/TheSimpsons). It isn’t connected directly to TSTO but they do let readers know when new stuff drops. The best thing about the page really is that you don’t have to have a FB account to view the goodness and it’s a page dedicated to the Best. Show. Ever with insider scoops.
Some other goodies which might interest you are 5 minutes of the Simpsons Family Guy crossover that was released over on Entertainment Weekly’s site. There’s actually a whole article but the video is embedded in it. I’m a solid Simpsons guy but this was actually pretty funny.
The article also has info from San Diego Comic Con like a glimpse of Season 26, etc. Bunny will have a full recap of the panels at Comic Con in the coming days, but just wanted to give everyone a sneak peak.
For those of you that have 5 minutes here’s the video:
Well, that’s all I really wanted to share. Truth be told I had to share the commercial (isn’t it great?) but figured I’d show some other stuff and give props where they are due. I know I will probably be spending more time than I should indoors from August 21st to Sep 1st. I think Fall Semester starts somewhere in there but we shall see.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
