Meet the Simpsons of Angola
America's most dysfunctional cartoon family (OK, second most) is coming to TV screens in Angola, via the South African satellite giant DSTV. How to introduce the Simpsons to a new market? An Angolan ad agency came up with this advertisement:
I love Homer's funky shirt and the cool braids on the girls. Homie's also drinking some unnamed African version of Duff. Looking at the original image, it seems most of the furniture has been replaced with two giant stereo speakers. I've never been to Angola, so I can't vouch for the accuracy of that one, but otherwise I think it's pretty funny.
No idea whether the ad agency, Executive Center, or the Angolan channel Bue got approval from the show's creators. But there's no way an American agency could have got away with the blackface.
