If you’ve ever watched The Simpsons, you know that the show has a knack for making predictions that, oddly enough, tend to come true. It has predicted the Ebola virus to accurately foresee plot twists in Game of Thrones. This long-running animated series has had its fair share of eerily accurate forecasts. Now, fans think they’ve spotted another ‘Simpsons Prediction,’ and this one involves tech giant Elon Musk.

Simpsons Prediction On The Latest Episode!

In a recent episode titled “Thirst Trap: A Corporate Love Story.” We meet a character named Persephone, a young CEO voiced by Elizabeth Banks. She manages to charm Mr. Burns into funding her dream project and even marrying her. The scene that has everyone talking happens when Mr. Burns gifts Persephone to the entire Twitter company for her birthday.

He mentions it was a bargain because “the previous owner had to sell it after his self-driving Mars rocket crashed into the international space station.”

Viewers were quick to connect the dots. Elon Musk, known for his ambitious space ventures through SpaceX, recently acquired X, the company formerly known as Twitter. Could this be another ‘Simpsons Prediction’ waiting to unfold?

This isn’t the first time The Simpsons has referenced Musk. He voiced a character in a 2015 episode, so the show is no stranger to making playful nods towards the entrepreneur.

Known For Predicting The Future!

What makes The Simpsons’ predictions so compelling is their track record. The show has been right about many things in the past. Fans are always on the lookout for the next prediction that might come true. This latest mention of a scenario oddly similar to Musk’s current ventures has led to animated discussions on social media, particularly on X.

The episode also touches upon the influence that comes with owning a social media platform. It shows Mr. Burns using his newly acquired power to remove any negative tweets about Persephone.

So, what’s next? Will this ‘Simpsons Prediction’ join the ranks of those that have come true? If not, could it be just a fun coincidence? Only time will tell. But one thing is clear: The Simpsons are far from done making these predictions. Fans are also equally enthusiastic about spotting them.


The Simpsons continues to capture the audience’s attention not just with humor. They also have the seemingly uncanny ability to predict the future. Whether these predictions are just coincidences or the result of keen observations, the phenomenon of the ‘Simpsons Prediction’ remains an interesting part of the show’s legacy.
