Well, make sure to watch the entire video because to no surprise, the Simpsons managed to predict the future AGAIN! Don’t forget to like the video and subscribe to the channel!In terms of entertainment, Disney is king, but that’s honestly because they’ve been buying all sorts of extensions for themselves over the last 10+ years. They bought Marvel Comics, they bought Lucasfilm, and now, they’re a little under two months away from officially owning Fox and all of its properties. Which is a huge get, and one that would be shocking…if The Simpsons didn’t predict it in 1998.Unlike the previous entry, this one was not only accurate, it was timely. This particular prediction came in 2014 in Season 25 Episode 16.Lisa gives a speech about her father being a hero, which goes viral. Because of this, Homer is asked to referee games at the World Cup in Brazil. Homer refuses bribes to fix games, as corruption seems to be rampant at the World Cup. In 2015, it was revealed that certain bodies within FIFA were involved in bribery, fraud, and money laundering.I know that this kind of thing may SEEM small time compared to all the other scandals that we’ve gone through, but trust me when i say that this was a big deal at the time, and is still a big deal to this day. FIFA isn’t just a soccer organization, it’s one that encapsulates the world in a way that is even bigger than the NFL, NBA, MLB, and more. NUMEROUS countries and people were affected by this scandal. And it made the revelation of it all the more shocking, and the fallout of it all the more important.You almost have to think that the Simpsons writers knew something would happen with FIFA before making this episode, but obviously we can’t prove that. But again, to do this episode and then next year have it be revealed as true? Wow.
