The worlds of The Simpsons and Portlandia collided last night as Fred Armisten and Carrie Brownstein guest starred on the latest episode of the celebrated animated television series. In the episode titled “The Day the Earth Stood Cool,” the Porlandia stars play hipster parents with a son named T. Rex (voiced by Patton Oswalt), who move in next door to The Simpsons. The episode also features an appearance from The Decemberists and Disco Stew wears a Daft Punk helmet. Watch clips below, or head to The Simpson’s website to watch the entire episode.
If you’re feeling slightly old, you’re not alone. A lot has changed since the hazy Generation-X days, when Homer Simpson could share the spotlight with The Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, and Cypress Hill.
