Two Swiss tourists made the ultimate tribute to The Simpsons from their vacation by recreating an episode of the popular cartoon show during a visit to New Orleans.
Last year The Simpsons gave a wonderful tribute to 54 restaurants and types of food in New Orleans by showing Homer Simpson on an in-depth food tour through the city.
This inspired Katrin von Niederhäusern and her friend Janine, who work as an illustrator, to copy the episode when they visited New Orleans this year.
Dedicated: Katrin von Niederhäusern and her friend Janine rewrote the episode of The Simpsons when the cartoon family visits New Orleans on the way to Florida
Original: the episode of The Simpsons that the two women imitated last year. It contained Homer on his way to Florida with his family. At one point he enjoyed crawfish from Cajun Seafood Co.
Creative: similar to the episode, the two Swiss women visited restaurants in the episode to eat the food that Homer eats
Copycats: A YouTube video showed a side-by-side comparison of the moment in the episode when Homer tried 54 different foods, such as the seafood casserole in K-Paul & # 39; s, around New Orleans, in addition to a version made by Katrin and Janine
Everything is fair: the women would eliminate who played Homer and who played Lisa for each of the scenes
Shot after shot shows how Katrin and Janine were not only able to get the food mentioned by Homer, but also recreate how Homer ate the food and where he ate it in the episode.
Not only does the recreation show the amazing efforts that the two women have put on YouTube video, but it also illustrates the detail that The Simpsons have put in the foodie episode to properly display the actual places in New Orleans.
The episode of Simpsons, entitled Lisa Gets the Blues, follows the cartoon family making an unexpected trip to New Orleans on the way to Florida.
Homer is then followed by Lisa through a segment of the episode as he tackles local eateries to eat an iconic menu item from each.
At one point Lisa says to her father: & # 39; There are also many historical sites. & # 39;
But Homer ignores this statement and continues to enjoy all the good food in the city.
The viral YouTube video by Katrin and Janine mimics this foodie moment for every scene. The description of the video reads: & # 39; Two Swiss girls love the Simpsons as much as New Orleans. So of course they had to recreate this series! & # 39;
Keep it accurate: they would even get the right background and facial expressions for the mirrored images. Both the cartoon and the women who enjoy po-boys are depicted
Priorities: The description in the YouTube video is: & # 39; Two Swiss girls love the Simpsons as much as New Orleans. So of course they had to recreate this series & # 39;
Nutrition goals: not only did the YouTube clip show how much the women are committed to recreating the foodie scene, but it also shows how well The Simpsons portrayed every restaurant
They then took viewers through every moment of the foodie scene, from visiting Bevi Seafood Co. for crawfish to getting creole sweet potato pies from Antoine & # 39; s. The women also enjoyed po-boys, fried crab cakes, jambalaya, friends chicken and pecan pie in popular places in New Orleans.
Although the video looked almost perfect to the eye of a viewer compared to the scene from The Simpsons, Katrin and Janine told Bored Panda that they encountered problems during filming.
& # 39; Although we had planned a lot in advance, there were still some obstacles during filming: a restaurant was closed on Sunday, a restaurant was closed forever, the dish was no longer on the menu, the dish was out of season , the dish was never on the menu, the restaurant was under construction, another was closed for the summer vacation, & they explained.
Another problem the women encountered was the imitation of Homer & # 39; s exact facial expression when eating the food due to the lack of manners.
& # 39; A man with a lot of charm but not so good manners, & # 39; said the women. & # 39; We had to lie on the table, sit on the floor, eat with fingers, eat with all our hands, lick the plates and shrimp and put a ton of fries in our mouths.
& # 39; All under constant observation of the other – very disturbed – restaurant guests. & # 39;
They turned off Homer and Lisa playing during the video so that each of them could stand in front of hilarious moments.
Unbelievable: the women confessed to having had problems filming the scenes, such as the closing or closing of certain restaurants since the episode of The Simpsons
Aim: Another difficult part of filming was imitating Homer & # 39; s very expressive responses and ways he ate the food
End product: the video quickly became viral after being shared with more than 570,000 views online last week
Whoever played Lisa for a specific scene would then watch from a comparable position that the cartoon character was standing at that time.
The video was so popular with fans that it has been viewed more than 570,000 times since the women first shared it last week.
People online appreciated not only the creativity of choosing to recreate the episode, but also the dedication of women to capture the right angles of every shot.
& # 39; The attention to detail is spectacular & # 39 ;, wrote a viewer. & # 39; I love how they change roles so that they can take turns playing Homer. And the fact that it is a tribute to a Simpsons episode of the last days. These Swiss misses are golden gods. & # 39;
Another person said: & # 39; Okay, I am really impressed. Even zooming and tilting the camera is good on the spot! & # 39;
