See The Famous Oscar Selfie–Simpsonized

The Simpsons creator Matt Groening put his most famous character in an animated collection of the most famous characters ever assembled.

At the Samsung-sponsored Academy Awards last Sunday, Ellen DeGeneres cherry-picked a handful of the most famous faces in the world to participate in a Samsung-facilitated group selfie. (Liza Minnelli was sadly not invited.) Currently residing at a record-breaking (by a large margin) 3.25 million retweets, this image has been burned into the retinas of anyone who pays even cursory attention to the Internet and/or movies by now. Although many have since tried to recreate the Voltron-like assemblage at their workplaces, “Harlem Shake”-style, one recreation stands out above the rest–the one that takes place in Springfield.

The Simpsons creator Matt Groening made a Simpsonized selfie himself, and then broadcasted it from Homer J. Simpson’s Twitter account. The image includes the caption: “The ugly true story of that Oscar selfie can finally be told!” and reveals Homer being excluded from the event. Groening nails a lot of details, of course, especially Kevin Spacey’s suavely surprised gaping maw. I like to think there’s even a little animated Liza Minnelli back there, not quite making it into the frame.
