The Simpsons didn’t feel so good after Thanos’ surprise appearance

The most ambitious crossover in history?

After a seasonal hiatus, The Simpsons continued its 30th season last 13 January with a surprise appearance from none other than Thanos, the Mad Titan.

Appearing in the long-running series’ couch gag, Thanos gets help from Maggie, who gives him her pacifier which serves as an Infinity Stone. The villain then proceeds to execute his dastardly planning, wiping out Homer, Marge, Lisa, and Bart.

Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo enjoyed the clips so much they shared it on their Instagram account on Monday.

Thanos’ appearance wasn’t the only newsworthy thing about the episode, The Girl on the Bus. The show also got meta by featuring a Homer meme in a brief text convo between Lisa and Homer.

Thanos and the Homer hedge GIF all in one episode? I’d say Mr. Burns said it best: “Excellent.”
