‘Simpsons’ parodies TV image campaigns
During Sunday’s “The Simpsons” on Fox, Springfield discovered their town anthem was not original to them.
Former Mayor Hans Moleman purchased the beat from a traveling music salesman (too bad Lionel Hutz was retired from the show or he could have sold them the track just like the Monorail.).
Using an upbeat tempo and interchangeable lyrics, the song may sound a bit familiar to TV viewers across the country.
Towns with the same theme song as Springfield: ☑ Tuscaloosa ☑ Austin ☑ Oakland ☑ Calgary #thesimpsons— The Simpsons (@TheSimpsons) February 9, 2015
Bart and Lisa Simpson ended up saving the town from their Tuscaloosa travesty by creating a new anthem with the help of guest Pharrell.
