Short Film: Simpson’s Empire

By Mike Everleth ⋅ April 16, 2013

If Andy Warhol hadn’t died young in 1987, there is no doubt he would have guest starred on The Simpsons as himself at some point. But, since we’ll never be able to see that, experimental filmmakers Clint Enns and Stephen Broomer have created the next best thing: The wonderful tribute animation Simpson’s Empire in which Bart and Milhouse are mesmerized by Warhol’s most notorious film, Empire.

While Enns’ actual short is only about a minute long, of course the Underground Film Journal has set it on an endless loop, so you can enjoy it for the full eight-hour glory Empire was intended for.
