    Star Trek XI Reference on the Simpsons!

    http://www.hulu.com/watch/133207/the-simpsons-stealing-first-base

    Thanks, Hulu!

    At the 18:50 mark, Bart's new love interest tries to revive him using CPR. It triggers a montage of famous movie kisses in Bart's head, including Gone With the Wind, From Here to Eternity, and an Alien nearly killing Ripley.

    Oh yeah, and XI!

    I liked the montage, especially the music.

    I recognized about 1/2 of those kissing scenes. Where does that put me on the cool-o-meter?:alienblush:

    Any time your show or movie is referenced on The Simpsons it is a good thing, even if it is my least favorite part of the new movie!

    Looks like they've also got the clip of that scene up at the ohnotheydidn't LJ.

    Edit:

    And now at TrekMovie.

    Since we've got two threads about this, I'll merge them so we've got our SpockUhuraSimpsons Trek XI references all in one place. Stand by for a moment...

    "Does Star Trek XI have legs?"

    If it didn't before, it does now, thanks to the Simpsons :)

    Woot! I can imagine all the people who saw the clip (but didn't see the movie) investigated it and are now S/U shippers ;)

    So, am I the first to notice that that's really a take-off on Cinema Paradiso? ;) Which really should have included the Archie Bunker/Sammy Davis, Jr. kiss.

    I'm impressed they got the rights to the music. That couldn't have been cheap! Maybe Enzo Morricone is a big Simpsons fan?

    ^ Is that where the montage idea and music come from? I've never seen Cinema Paradiso, but it certainly wouldn't be unlike the Simpsons for them to have done that.
