To announce that Africa’s digital satellite TV service DStv now offers The Simpsons on channel Bué in Angola, ad agency Executive Center in Luanda, Angola decided to, uh, re-culturize America’s most famous TV family. For comparison purposes, here’s the original shot. This Simpson’s aficionado has several questions. What’s with the huge honkin’ speakers? What strange brew is Homer drinking? Was this illustration cleared by Matt Groening/Fox lawyers? My favorite details are the cool threads on Homie and Marge, and the replacement of the shitty sailboat painting (which inspired Marge’s romance novel) by a Serengeti elephant scene. |Image: AdsOfTheWorld|
