Look, we’re all going a little insane. Some are managing better than others.
Like one Ontario family, which used their time in quarantine to create their own version of The Simpsons’ iconic opening sequence. As of writing, the video has been retweeted nearly 7,000 times on Twitter.
Check it out:
Everything from the shoddy costumes to the lo-fi acting is just brilliant. Or, in the words of Mr. Burns, excellent.
Press around the world have covered the gag. Here’s a particularly notable shoutout:
“The kids are in activities, pretty well every night of the week: dance, scouts brownies, swimming, and soccer,” Joel Sutherland told HuffPost Canada. “I work full-time at a library, and I’m also a children’s author. When the weekends come around, we usually just want to spend our free time chilling, watching TV or going to the park.”
The Simpsons’ official Twitter account even picked up the performance:
Of course, thanks to COVID-19, dance, scouts, brownies, swimming, soccer, working at a library, and going to the park are all pretty much impossible now and for the foreseeable future.
The family reportedly also has Scooby-Doo and Ghostbusters costumes for the whole family. You can bet there will be future content from the Sutherland gang.
