Tesla’s upcoming all-electric supercar, the next-generation Roadster, not too long ago obtained a cool cameo in an episode of the long-running animated sequence The Simpsons. The brand new Roadster’s look in Season 32 Episode 5 of the long-running present was very transient, but it surely does spotlight how Tesla’s autos are frequently featured in mainstream media.
Fairly curiously, the brand new Roadster within the episode belonged to Hollywood A-lister Leonardo DiCaprio, who was charging the all-electric supercar inside his property. The phrases “Tesla” had been clearly emblazoned on the rear of the automobile, along with a plate that learn “King of the World,” a reference to the actor’s iconic main function in Titanic.

This isn’t the primary time that The Simpsons has featured a Tesla in its episodes. Kent Brockmant has used his Mannequin S’ Summon in the midst of an ongoing kerfuffle on the valet, and Mr. Burns had been proven stealing electrical energy from billionaire Richard Branson to cost his Tesla. Krusty the Clown was additionally proven bodily attacking Homer in Season 30 Episode 8 whereas his Mannequin S was on Autopilot. Elon Musk has been featured in a devoted episode as properly.
What’s fairly cool about The Simpsons is the truth that the present has an eerie knack for predicting the future. These vary from Donald Trump’s presidency, Disney’s acquisition of twentieth Century Fox, smartwatches, the rise of the sport Farmville, and even the coronavirus pandemic. With this in thoughts, and contemplating the variety of instances that the present has particularly featured a Tesla, it could not be shocking if the electrical automobiles do develop into ubiquitous within the coming years.
The seeds are already there, in any case, with Tesla already constructing mass-market automobiles just like the Mannequin 3 and the Mannequin Y, in addition to an upcoming $25,000 electrical car. Tasks just like the Cybertruck, regardless of the pickup’s polarizing design, might finally show to be huge successes for the corporate. The identical is true for initiatives just like the Tesla Semi, which has the potential to disrupt the trucking trade.
In Season 26 Episode 6 of The Simpsons, the present featured a futuristic model of New York, and because it turned out, one of many greatest buildings within the metropolis’s skyline was marked “The Tesla Constructing.” That’s not such a foul thought in any respect, minus the invading creatures in that episode, in fact.
