17 Jul WATCH: Simpsons Pokémon Go Promo Released By FOX
Pokémon Go has been taking the world by storm these last couple of weeks, so it should come as no surprise that it’s also found its way to Springfield. Well to be honest, it’s actually refreshing to see The Simpsons release a video about something relevant in pop-culture… whilst it’s still relevant. With the show’s time-restricting production schedule, us fans usually have to wait months before an episode features anything relating to ‘current news’. Which is why they’ve cleverly used old footage with new dialogue.
In this new TV promo released by FOX, Homer is clearly more interested in collecting Pokemon than he is looking after his children at the zoo. Whilst this is clearly a fun poke at the people who have dedicated all of their energy and concentration to collecting their favourite Pokemon, one can’t help but also notice this scene’s newfound relevance due to the recent drama caused by an unsupervised child climbing into a zoo enclosure (you know what I’m talking about).
Anyway, let us know what you think of the Simpsons Pokémon Go video:
