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:
