"The Simpsons" Does The 2010 Equivalent Of The Bartman

No, I don't know what the impetus for replacing The Simpsons' theme song with the perpetually disheveled pop star Ke$ha's ode to Autotune and staying out all night "Tik Tok" this week was, either. (Perhaps it was a consolation prize for her losing out on the live-action Smurfs movie's Smurfette role to Katy Perry?) But points for having smooth-voiced criminal Snake Jailbird lip-sync one of the yodel-y bits of the chorus, which just seems so right. [Via]

The Simpsons~ should try "adopting" some infantile third-world bag of bones. That always makes you relevant.

this episode was a pretty solid attack on the camera-ridden nanny state, actually, as long as we're talking relevance

The lip sync is way off, which is just the shitty cherry on top of the ass sundae.

It's funny to me because I hear that song being used to promote shitty entertainment more than I hear it being played in a "DJ playlist" context (hey, I've been staying off radio for a while!), so for me it's the shitty song you use to promote the shitty movie/TV show/etc. It's ridiculous for "The Simpsons" to jump onto that bandwagon, which is why I think it's funny to use it here… as a send-up of everything else clamoring to use that not-very-good song.

Looks like someone's currying favor with their seven year-old daughter.

I smell custody battle.

Mrs. Krabapple is such a slut.

Ok, I give up: Why is God dancing with the devil?
