If you’re anything like us, you probably spent part of your Christmas holiday binging on Making A Murderer, Netflix’s excellent true crime documentary series. Now it turns out the show would have been even better if it was about Homer Simpson.
If you need context, Making A Murderer covers the story of Manitowoc, Wisconsin native Steven Avery, who spent eighteen years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit until DNA evidence eventually exonerated him. U
Once he was released, he launched a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the local police department for wrongfully imprisoning him, but then he was suddenly arrested for another, even worse crime. However, some of the details about this crime don’t add up. Did Avery actually do the deed, or is it possible the police department is framing him? It sounds unbelievable, but if you’ve seen the show, you’ll know it’s not that far-fetched an idea.
Anyway, that’s the gist of the show, and that’s all you need to know to enjoy this parody from the team at Vulture, who take 25 years of Simpsons clips — especially the Who Shot Mr Burns? episodes — to create this amazing spoof trailer.
