After weeks of anticipation, the preview poster for The Simpsons finale featuring Sigur Rós has hit the internet!
In the image, Carl Carlsson, who is of African-Icelandic heritage, is being chased by Homer, Lenny and Moe in front of Hallgrímskirkja and a Matt Groening-ified statue of Leifur Eiriksson. All four are clad in traditional lopapeysa sweaters.
Above the beloved characters are cartoonified portraits of the also beloved Sigur Rós as floating busts in a northern light-filled sky. The likeness of Jónsi sports his trademark bandleader jacket and a mischievous little smile.
Dwellers of Iceland can watch the two-episode finale on Monday, May 20 at 20:45 on Stöð 2.
