The Simpsons Yolo Couch Gag is a tribute to Gravity (Season 25 Episode 4)

Date: November / 11 / 2013 + Comments: 10

The Simpsons episode titled as Yolo started with a couch dedicated to the film Gravity by Alfonso Cuarón. Before the couch part starts, during the intro we see that the billboard reads: “Santa’s Lap, the line is already forming. Springfield Mall – Never Leave!” and Bart writes “My school schedule does not include a bye week,” on the school’s blackboard.

Before it gets hit by the car at the entrance of his house Homer yells “not again” And then the couch gag starts as follows:

Everybody is standing on different walls of the living-room, looks like some strange gravity is happening and the couch is the center of it. Maggie is the only one sitting with no problem on the couch while all the others try to jump and hold to it, first Marge, then Lisa and Bart, but Homer has a difficult time doing it from the roof. Maggie tries to help him with a spring toy, and when it looks like he is going to be on the couch he loses control and floats away passing through the roof to the infinity of the sky.

:music: Song: A royalty-proof version of “Spiegel im spiegel” by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. (thanks to the comments for this info)
