‘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.

The subtle nod to Frank Gari’s Hello image campaign was further referenced on the shows official Twitter account.

Bart and Lisa Simpson ended up saving the town from their Tuscaloosa travesty by creating a new anthem with the help of guest Pharrell.
