Canadian singer The Weeknd has made his first appearance in the hit animated comedy TV series The Simpsons.
The Weeknd’s debut came in an episode centred around Bart Simpson becoming friends with a child influencer, played by the Dawn FM singer. It was aired on Sunday, March 20.
The writer of the episode, Ryan Koh, described the plot saying:
“Bart’s new friendship with a hip celebrity is going to make him objectively, undeniably cool. Homer feels left behind and jealous, so he will start wearing skate-wear to compensate. He will lead an uprising of his fellow middle-aged loser dads to wear ‘crazy clothes they don’t understand’ in order to feel young and cool again.”
“The Simpsons” is not the first animated series for which The Weeknd has provided voice acting. In 2020, he appeared in an episode of American Dad!.
Afterward, he mentioned that The Simpsons is one of the few shows that would compare to working on American Dad!.
