A new still from the episode shows Homer standing onstage decked out in the same white singlet, blue jeans and studded belt that Freddie Mercury wore for the Live Aid performance, as well as his iconic moustache.
Homer Simpson has been given a Freddie Mercury makeover in a still from a new episode of The Simpsons that allegedly recreates Queen’s 1985 Live Aid performance.
Queen guitarist Brian May took to social media to confirm that the special episode, which aired on Sunday night in the US, is legitimate. He shared the screenshot over the weekend, revealing that some of the band’s material had already been licensed to the show.
“Aaay-O ! Doh ! Is this a ‘thing’ ? Apparently SO ! But I may have to wait a while,” he wrote. “Well – dear folks in the USA – let me know how it goes !!! We don’t get Fox TV over here… And, by the way, since some of you have asked, yes – ssssh…. some material HAS been officially licensed to the fabulous Simpsons.”
