I’ve already talked about how I’m a fan of Family Guy over The Simpsons but by no means does that infer that I think The Simpsons is bad. in fact one has to truly appreciate a show that can be in a primetime TV spot and eclipse the 450 episode mark. It’s truly outstanding.
But it’s not just that. It’s that the Simpsons have virtually created an entire media world all on it’s own. I mean way back it was the Bart Simpson T-Shirts but it’s so much more. With merchandise, DVD’s, games, you name, The Simpsons brand is a complete force in media.
And let’s not forget The Simpsons culture outside of marketing and business. How about fan work? Good God there’s gotta be at least 50 million pictures out there of people creating Simpsons stuff. One of my favorite collections?
These are 7 famous works of art remade Simpsons style….
Edward Munch’s The Scream
Norman Rockwell’s Triple Self Portrait
Grant Woods’ American Gothic
Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe
Vincent Van Gogh’s Self Portrait
Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring
Leonardo Da Vinci’s Self Portrait
