These Swiss Tourists Recreated A Whole Episode Of “The Simpsons” By Eating Food In 54 New Orleans Restaurants

Published 2 months ago

Who wouldn’t want to star in an episode of “The Simpsons”? Well, two Swiss girls, Katrin von Niederhäusern and her friend Janine, certainly did. Since they couldn’t star in an actual episode of the show, they decided to do the next best thing – they recreated an episode shot-by-shot. And they did it in the best possible way – by involving lots of delicious food.

The two girls visited New Orleans and decided it was the perfect place to recreate the 17th episode from the series’ 29th season called “Lisa Gets the Blues”. In the episode, The Simpsons visited New Orleans to attend Jazz Fest. Homer, however, had another thing in mind – he decided to try out the local cuisine – all of it. And the girls did too.

“We just love both so much: New Orleans and The Simpsons. So when in this one episode, both things got combined, we got so excited, we decided to make a homage to it,” said Katrin in an interview with Bored Panda. “After googling, we found out that those 54 restaurants exist in real life. And what we admire so much is how accurately detailed the makers of The Simpsons are. Everything looks just like it. So impressive.”

“Even though we planned ahead a lot, there were still some obstacles during filming: a restaurant was closed on Sundays, a restaurant was closed forever, the dish was not on the menu anymore, the dish was out of season, the dish was never on the menu, the restaurant was under construction, another one was closed for the summer break,” said Katrin.

“In one of the restaurants, the sign was not as in the cartoon on the window, but it was on the main entrance of the restaurant… The door, where every customer comes in. So to still have the right shot and perspective, we needed to convince the restaurant owner that we can set up our camera and a whole table just right in the front of the entrance door. Thank you Emeril’s for letting us do that.”

“But the biggest challenge was to imitate Homer!” joked Katrin. “A man with great charm but not so great manners. We had to lie on the table, sit on the floors, eat with fingers, eat with the whole hand, lick the plates, and put shrimps and a ton of fries in our mouth. Everything under the constant observation of the other – very disturbed – restaurant guests.”

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness, so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
