spider-pig

I was iffy about the Simpsons movie … until I saw this bit in the most recent trailer:

(If you can’t see the video above, it’s available on YouTube.)

I can’t explain it, but I can’t stop giggling. The best part, as Rob pointed out, is the way the pig’s feet walk across the ceiling, stopping and starting in time to Homer’s lyrics.

On a related note (and I realize that this particular meme probably sailed on about a month ago), but the Web site for the Simpsons movie has a fun “create yourself as a Simpsons character” tool. Here’s mine.

Updated July 30 at 4:06 p.m. - I keep getting hits from Google from people looking for lyrics to the Spider-Pig song. So to answer your query, here they are:

Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig

Does whatever a Spider-Pig does

Can he swing from a web?

No, he can’t: He’s a pig

Look out…

He is a Spider-Pig!
