While everyone waits for this year’s Super Bowl Sunday match between the Broncos and the Seahawks, the classic television show The Simpsons already saw the spectacle back in 2005.
In the episode, “Bonfire of the Manatees,” Homer loses a bet with the Mob about who will win the big game. Due to his big loss, he must allow the Mob to shoot an adult film in his house.
According to Yahoo Sports, the coincidence is a reminder to many that 1989's Back to the Future Part II predicted the Chicago Cubs beating Miami in the 2015 World Series. The two teams are still in the same league.
The Simpsons has used Twitter to remind the world that the game has been predicted by the show.
In the episode, the final score was predicted to be Broncos-19, Seahawks-14. CBS Sports reports that Las Vegas currently holds the Broncos as 2.5-points favorite, so the Simpsons' score is not too far off from currently speculation, even if it’s nine-years-old.
