A True Game Changer

This show has obviously been extremely influential. You might even say it changed television as we know it. But few realize just how extensive its sway is beyond the silver screen. For example:

  • The song “Yellow” by Coldplay is based on Chris Martin’s love of the show. It’s true. Of course, it’s hard to tell now, but the original draft of the lyrics made the connection much clearer. The band ultimately decided to change them a day before recording the final version out of concern that they might alienate audiences, as they discussed many of the show’s characters in a brazenly erotic way.

  • The Nelson Sauvin hop used in brewing can function in one of two ways. It can give your IPA an intense hoppy punch, or it can be used for achieving subtler, sweeter flavors. For this reason, it should come as no surprise that the ‘Nelson’ in its name refers to the iconic bully in the series who, from time to time, reveals himself to be a real softy.

  • Looking to kick back and relax much like the show’s famously chill bus driver? Then you need the piece of furniture that takes its name from him: the ottoman!

  • While many argue about which Springfield is the inspiration for the setting of Matt Groening’s wildly popular cartoon, the fact is, many Springfields are actually based on it! Seeing the show’s popularity, several unfortunately named towns decided, in the early 1990s, to rebrand themselves in the hopes of improving their image. To think, Springfields in Massachusetts, Missouri, and Illinois were once named Dogbutt, Creek-o-Milk, and Blood Knife, respectively!

See. Quite influential. So grab some shirts and celebrate something that changed our culture as we know it!

Hello Springfield! by conocane

Here’s how conocane describes his style in his own words: “I love drawing pop style characters… but I like more to sketch even nonsense and silly stuff.” And wow, could that be more accurate here? Like, these are two totally recognizable pop culture characters rendered in a totally delightful, nonsensical way. Pretty fun, right?
