(Metro) The Simpsons totally predicted the Fifa corruption scandal a year ago
Friday 29 May 2015 1:41 pm
All of those years working in a nuclear power plant appear to have given Homer Simpson psychic abilities.
How else can you explain the show calling the recent Fifa corruption scandal all the way back in March 2014?
In an episode, an official from the world governing football body, which is not explicitly named as Fifa, visits Homer Simpson to try and get him to help give them a better image as they have a reputation for being corrupt. Moments later, the character is handcuffed and led away by cops.
He is also shown brandishing a French magazine cover with the headline: ‘Scandale De Football.’
FOX appear to be proud of their spooky prediction, and have also reminded us that they correctly predicted Germany as the World Cup winners in 2014.
