Last night’s episode of The Simpsons — now in its 23rd decade! — featured the guest vocal talents of none other than Meg and Jack White, a.k.a. the White Stripes…
OR DID IT??
I have now watched this YouTube clip approximately 43 times, and I remain unconvinced that Jack and Meg’s speaking voices are actually theirs. The two run into Bart during a parody of the Michel Gondry-directed video for “Hardest Button to Button” — I could explain why, but it involves Vegas and paddle ball and is really not worth the time — and they have but one true line each. Still, after careful analysis and (since I appear to be linking to a lot of my own work here today) a couple spins of this old NPR interview, I have some serious, serious doubts about the true identity of the actors delivering those lines.
They lied to us about being brother and sister. Who knows what else this band is capable of??
