Fred Armisen And Carrie Brownstein Bring Portlandia To “The Simpsons”

Last night, Homer Simpson turned into a hipster.

Fred’s and Carrie’s characters moved in next door to Homer.

Patton Oswalt voices their son.

They inspired the entire Simpson family to be a little more conscious of being cool.

(Minus Marge, that is.)

But don’t worry, not everyone thought he was cool.


Eventually, the entire town of Springfield turned into Portlandia.

Complete with a cameo by The Decemberists!

All good things must come to an end — and this did, as soon as the New York Times named Springfield “America’s Coolest City.”
