Hey hey hey friendereenos!
Wookiee swinging in with some Simpsons news for y’all. If you didn’t know already, the uber popular Discovery Channel show Mythbusters is taking on Simpsons “myths” for the premiere of their new season TONIGHT. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman are set to test a few scenes from the Best. Show. Ever.
Here’s an excerpt from a December 17th, 2014 articly by Entertainment Weekly:
“We set out to test Bart throwing a cherry bomb into the toilet that makes all toilets in the school act like geysers,” Savage exclusively told EW, referring to the 1990 episode “The Crepes of Wrath.” “And then there’s one [from season five’s “Sideshow Bob Roberts] in which Homer’s house is about to be destroyed by a wrecking ball and Homer places his body between the wrecking ball and the house to keep it from being destroyed.”
Just those two scenes being recreated have me excited. Simpsons showrunner Al Jean is also set to appear in the one hour episode.
They made a life-size 5’11 Homer Simpson! How cool is that? Here’s a couple images from their Facebook.
You can see a bunch more cool images from them on their Facebook. Here’s the link.
You can read the whole article from Entertainment Weekly here. EW also had another short article that included a trailer. You can click the link to see the short article but I embedded the trailer from MyTube just for you.
I’m super excited for this and have my DVR set so I can recap the goodness for you later for all those tappers without access to the Discovery Channel. I love Mythbusters and will be watching the previous episode also which is Star Wars goodness.
Of course, Adam and Jamie were actually in the Best. Show. Ever. To see them as yellow characters, just check out “The Daughter Also Rises” (S23:E13). Their show is called Mythcrackers but it’s still the same awesomeness Simsons-style. So rad that now that it’s being carried over into the real world. Bring on the bear in the cannon!
That’s it my friends. I’m sure some of you are just as excited as I am. Sound off below with your thoughts and comments. Do you have a favorite myth they busted or confirmed? Much love, stay classy and TTFN… Wookiee out!
