The Simpsons boss reveals show's most jaw-dropping 'prediction' that came true dubbed 'too eerie for words' | The Sun
THE Simpsons boss has revealed the show's most jaw-dropping 'prediction' that came true – dubbed 'too eerie for words'.
The hit animated series has seen many seemingly obscure or bizarre predictions come true in the 32 years its been on air.
These have included Donald Trump's Presidency, Richard Branson's flight into space and the Ebola virus.
However, there was one storyline that bosses didn't expect to come true in real life.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean said: "Most of the other things like Trump being President or Brazil winning the world cup are educated guesses.
"Trump was considering being President back in the 90s. We wanted Germany to win because we went to Brazil to lose and Germany was the next best bet for the World Cup.

"So, a lot of the things that we predicted are just, unfortunately, things you could see coming."
He continued: "There was one, I didn’t work on this, but it was just too eerie for words.
"In the 90s, we did an episode about the World Trade Centre. There was a handbook held up that said, “New York on $9 a day”. Then it had the two Towers, so it looked like a 9/11.
"That was completely coincidental, that was bizarre. I don’t know, I can’t explain that."
