Psychedelic Simpsons: This Instagram account captures trippy scenes from The Simpsons and we can’t get enough of it.

To date over 600 images of Simpsons characters caught in scenes that seem almost hallucinatory and kaleidoscopic have been posted. Known for its ability to breach serious social and political topics through a comedic platform, The Simpsons has become an intrinsic part of pop culture.

The graphics and artistic animation style of the show has become iconic, creating visuals that this account has taken full advantage of. Accompanied by captioned quotes, funny one-liners or hashtags, the posts are simple but original – amassing a following of over 100,000 Simpsons-loving psychonauts.

From ‘child-friendly beer’ to Ritalin-spiked milkshakes, there are underlying drug references rampant throughout The Simpsons and this Instagram account takes us on a journey through some of the best psychotomimetic moments across the series.

Here are some of our favourites:
