Oh my goodness… it’s been a while two weeks since a new episode of The Simpsons aired but have no fear… Wookiee’s here. Of course I have nothing to do with it but I figured I should remind all my favorite addicts about the new episode this Sunday, 25 January 2015, on FOX. This one is entitled “The Musk Who Fell to Earth”. Of course, the current episode tie-in probably also clued you in but here’s the official synopsis from TV Guide:
“When inventor Elon Musk (voiced by himself) arrives in Springfield and befriends Homer, the two revolutionize the nuclear plant. But the ambitious Musk soon has Mr. Burns seething and Burns tries to have him removed, forcing Homer to make a tough decision.”
This episode definitely has a strange premise but I guess when you’re the creator of PayPal and CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX, you get enough prestige to have an entire Simpsons episode revolve around you. Here’s a couple clips from FOX’s Animation Domination Channel on MyTube.
Looks like Elon isn’t afraid to make fun of himself so that’s a plus. Also a little glimpse of him and sexy Nosferatu Burns.
The first mention I heard of this episode back in 2014 mentioned Elon stealing Burns’ money… that could be interesting. While I will certainly be watching this Sunday, I don’t know how I feel about this one. My best friend works at SpaceX so I have been anticipating it but I basically have no clue how it’s all gonna shake out. I do know how my buddy describes his boss so this one should be different. Alas, requests for an interview with Mr. Musk were denied but I know I’m just a lowly Wookiee. Here’s an article I found about the episode which makes things a little clearer and actually got me more excited.
No matter what, the new electric cars and Slave Willie should make a bit more sense after watching this episode, right? What do YOU think is going to happen in the episode? Excited to see Mr. Burns face a new nemesis? Ever even heard of Tesla and SpaceX before? Think Homer will make a good friend for Elon the genius? Sound off below.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
