Simpsons Predicted Toys ‘R’ Us Closure In 2004 [VIDEO]

How do you think they manage to do this so often? Luck?

The Simpsons seem to have a very good grasp on what the future of our world looks like, and they prove it time and time again.

It surfaced today that the longest running sitcom in history accurately predicted the closure of Toys ‘R’ Us in a 2004 episode! The clip, below, shows, according to HuffPost, “some Springfield citizens set(ing) out to obliterate child-friendliness, breaking a ball pit and tearing down a statue of the animated characters Itchy and Scratchy.

But in perhaps the most subversive act of all, they turn around the backward “R” in the toy chain’s logo to make it face correctly ― and kids react in horror.”

How do you think they manage to do this so often? Luck?
