Oscars 2014: The Simpsons recreate Ellen's Oscar selfie (Photo)

The Oscars this year were memorable for a few reasons, but one of the moments that will stand out in Oscar history was Elle DeGeneres’ infamous selfie she took with the likes of Brad Pitt, Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence a others. The selfie broke Twitter, earning more retweets than any single tweet ever had in the history of the social media platform and it has now entered the pop culture lexicon.

While just about everyone and their grandma are recreating the Oscar selfie, one formerly relevant television show actually managed to do something that wasn’t lame for once and drew up a re-creation of the moment. Matt Groening Simpsonized the moment forever with this photo he drew up right after everything went down.

It’s probably the coolest thing that the show has done in the last 15 years as even if it’s self-indulgent, it’s still better than most of what we have to put up with nowadays from the show. That’s both a nostalgic relief and a sad commentary on the state of The Simpsons these days.
