For three decades, FOX's tentpole animated sitcom series, The Simpsons, has been airing new and hilarious episodes that never seem to go out of style. Without being too tame or too raunchy, the show has managed to strike a chord with many demographics, and there is, without a doubt, something for everyone.
One of the yearly traditions that the series has spawned is the Treehouse of Horror specials. Airing every October, the anthology episode places the characters from the series is strange and sometimes deadly stories that either spoof popular culture or are completely original. After three decades, it has become a tradition for many households to tune in for the scares.
A brand new clip of this year's Treehouse episode was recently released on the show's Twitter and has decided to be a bit more topical for one of its stories. The clips show's Homer going through a mild existential crisis as he tries to decide who he wants to vote for, which leads into a brief highlight of the past presidential term and the most recent year as well.
There are still many more stories that will release in this year's episode, but with the year the world has been having, this particular episode will be special. We would love to hear your thoughts on the clip in the comments below!
