Fans reckon The Simpsons predicted Bad Bunny throwing a fan's phone away

The Simpsons has done it again.

The hit animated TV show has been hailed as the great foreshadower of history after miraculously predicting loads of real-world events before they happen.

But this latest one is just too bizarre.


Fans have seized on a music video that premiered on Christmas Day back in 2021 when Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, collaborated with The Simpsons.

The Puerto Rican singer's video for TE DESEO LO MEJOR, which translates to I Wish You The Best, showed Homer spending too much time on his phone.

After failing to come home on time, Marge puts Homer in the proverbial dog house.


She gives him the cold shoulder until the whole family is at a Bad Bunny concert (because of course he would go to Springfield during a US tour).

Bad Bunny gets the pair on stage and Homer eventually agrees to relinquish his phone, which the singer then crushes with his foot.

Fans reckon that is an eerily similar moment to what happened in real life this week when Bad Bunny tossed a fan's phone away when she got too close.

One person wrote: "It’s getting scary."


Another added: "Okay now it’s just getting weird."

A third said: "I need The Simpsons to predict my future! They're always spot on."

If you're unclear about the reference, don't worry, it's fairly niche.



Bad Bunny divided opinion when footage of him walking down the street surrounding by fans and his entourage went viral.

One fan in particular got pretty close to the singer and tried to get a selfie.

While he was initially seen to be smiling for the camera, it wasn't long before he grabbed the woman's phone and threw it in the distance.

He copped some criticism from people who said such a rash decision shouldn't have been made.


But he took to Twitter to defend himself.

He wrote (which has been translated from Spanish): "The person who comes up to me to say hello, to tell me something, or just to meet me, will always receive my attention and respect.

"Those who come to put a phone b****d in my face I will consider it for what it is, a lack of respect and I will treat it likewise."

While this Simpsons reference is a little loose considering it didn't actually happen on the show, it hasn't stopped people thinking they've done it again.
