Simpsonize Me!

September 17th, 2007 | Posted in General

This is something I’ve been meaning to do for a few months, but never got around to. After playing with the psudeo-caricature creator that is part of the Wii game console, I was again reminded of it… plus I ate at Burger King for lunch on Wednesday.

Burger King did a tie in with the Simpsons movie this summer which included a very cool interactive website. When you visit, you can upload a photo of yourself and have their drooling aliens “Simpsonize” you. By analyzing the picture and asking you a few questions, out comes a basic Simpson’s character of you. You can then customize certain features to try and get closer to a more recognizable you. Last month in MAD #481, the entire MAD staff did it and included it on the letters page:



To be fair, they did a lot of their own customizing afterward. My buddy Keelan Parham did the same thing after seeing the MAD staff’s results on our trip to their offices in NYC. So, without further ado, here is what I would look like in the world of the Simpsons:


I had to do a lot of customizing myself, but there you have it!

    It’s like you stepped right out of an episode! Perfect Springfieldian likeness.

    Yeah, I suspect “delt and bicep size” wasn’t one of the online options.

    Well, I did say I did ‘a lot of customizing”… 🙂
