On May 4 an entire Simpson’s episode will be in the form of Legos. The article from The Guardian suggests it’s due to the success of The LEGO movie, but that seems like a quick turn-around. Regardless, it’s also the 550th episode.
Thanks to heavy marketing including an entire ad break recreated with bricks, The Lego Movie enjoyed a bumper weekend at the box office, raking in $13.4m in the UK and $69.1m in the US. Now Lego is going one step further by recreating an entire episode of The Simpsons out of the building blocks. For the 550th episode of the show, titled Brick Like Me, Homer wakes up to find that everyone in Springfield is made of Lego. He then has to “put together” how he got there and work out how to get home.
