While The Simpsons have been LEGO-fied in real life and will premiere a LEGO-themed episode in May, Homer and his family were not among the many branded characters that appeared in The LEGO Movie (Bart’s best friend, Milhouse, did make a brief, wordless cameo). But a creative fan, Monsieur Caron, has decided to bring the film and TV show’s main characters together with a blocky interpretation of the famous couch gag featuring Marge, Emmet, Wildstyle, and others.
It’s a clever video that presumably took painstaking work to create in a relatively short amount of time—the elaborate Simpsons LEGO set didn’t officially go on sale to the public until Feb. 1 of this year. But as we’ve seen before, brickfilm auteurs like Monsieur Caron are a passionate bunch.
