Terrifying Simpsons Predictions for 2021
The Simpsons continues to attract loyal fans around the world, but also myths and mysteries that baffle many of its viewers. One of them is the screenwriters’ ability to present facts and situations in fiction that, years later, end with having something to do with them in real life.
The animated series, the brainchild of Matt Groening, breaks all records with 32 weather seasons and over 700 episodes. In them, there are many scenes that seemed absurd but with the passage of time as if amazing predictions came true in the heyday of Nostradamus and Papa Vanga. And for the brand new 2021, the program has already broadcast some spooky events.
Among the most striking examples of predictions include: the 2001 attack on the Twin Towers, the 2008 US presidential election in which Barack Obama defeated John McCain, the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States, and the Coronavirus pandemic.
They also expected other cases linking musical and sports personalities, such as introducing Lady Gaga in the Super Bowl or injuring Neymar in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
With the list of hit songs endless, after the tumultuous 2020 year, many Springfield fans have dusted some of the seasons in an effort to explain what will happen in 2021.
And according to viewers, the predictions for the new year aren’t very encouraging. They even set a very precise date, in January, when they argue a troubling event will happen.
The chapter “La Casita del Horror 31”, which corresponds to season 32, marked elections in the north of the country. You can see Homer Simpson fall asleep, and that way he forgot to vote on November 3.
The horrific events recounted in fiction take place on January 20, the same date many social media users linked to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden in August 2020.
In the classroom, Homer is shown seated on the roof of his house with a shield made of humans, pots and strainers, with a beer can. Giant robot kicks Juan Tobo, who says sarcastically, “This happens to me to vote for Kanye (West).” For their part, Lenny and Carl look in amazement, hidden behind a wrecked car as a city engulfed in flames.
Fires were seen all over Springfield’s streets and a cluster of machines ran through the neighborhood to exterminate any survivors. All characters continue to wear face masks due to the Coronavirus.
The final scene of the show features the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse: Plague, Famine, War, and Death, which has been replaced with the chapter name: “House of Horrors 31”.
