Should They Change Homer’s Name To O.J.?

African Simpsons

An African ad agency has made The Simpsons a little more colorful.

LUANDA – An Angolan advertising agency has given Homer Simpson and his family an African makeover, raising eyebrows among fans of one of America’s most cherished sitcoms.

The Simpsons, broadcast in more than 90 countries, have always been portrayed as yellow but the advertising agency, Executive Center in Luanda, decided to turn them brown in a promotional video aired by Africa’s digital satellite TV service DSTV in Angola.

Homer, Marge, Lisa and Bart are portrayed as Africans sitting on their over-used family couch. The family is shown wearing African-inspired clothing and their living room has little more than two huge loud speakers.

Even Homer’s cherished beer has been replaced by Cuca, the Budweiser of Angola. (H/T – )

Strangely enough, since there are no nuclear power plants in Angola, Mr. Burns was recreated as a ruthless Somali warlord:

Smithers: “Sir, our men have shot down an American Black Hawk helicopter.”

Mr. Burns: “Excellent!”
