Yes! That headline is correct! Thanks to the creative minds of a YouTuber named revbleech, every Pink Floyd album has indeed been “explained” by the Simpsons in a simple video uploaded by this YouTuber.
revbleech explains every album from Piper At The Gates Of Dawn (1967), to the Endless River (2014) in a clip explaining every album. It seeks to capture the feeling of each and every record through the characters of Homer Simpson, Krusty the Clown and the other residents of Springfield.
The video also lasts for two minutes and eleven seconds.
We are all particularly intruiged to listen to the clip for Animals. This clip features Simpsons character Mr Burns and a flying pig. Mr Burns owns the Nuclear Power Plant. Mr Burns’ massive desire for wealth reflects the criticism towards capitialism echoed in the orginal album lyrics by Roger Waters of PF.
