The disappearance of the submarine that dove to the bottom of the ocean on a mission to locate the Titanic but was unable to do so has captivated the attention of people all around the world.
Since the story emerged, a large number of internet users have satirized the event by creating memes. One of the users on TikTok has commented that the situation reminds them of an episode of “The Simpsons.”
TikToker Justconspiracies (@nooneknowswhy19_) uploaded a video that has since gone viral, racking up over 25 million views and 1.7 million likes. In the video, they presented a segment from the cartoon sitcom that many people believe predicted that the submersible would be lost at sea.
In the segment that lasts for one minute and fifty seconds, Homer, the cartoon’s patriarch, boards a one-man submarine and travels to the ocean’s depths in search of buried wealth. When his guide, who he thought was his “long lost father,” suddenly vanishes into the night, his journey takes a turn for the worst. Homer follows a luminous fish hoping to find Bart, but he gets trapped inside a rock formation deep in the ocean.
He eventually loses consciousness due to his oxygen supply running out entirely.
“Daddy,” he groaningly called out as he began to lose consciousness.
Many people believe that the show’s plot is frighteningly similar to the circumstances surrounding the Titanic submersible, which went missing at sea on Sunday. The ship was approached by five guys, one of whom was a father and his son. According to NBC News, the United States Coast Guard uncovered wreckage in the area where they searched for the submersible consistent with a “catastrophic implosion.” As a result, it is now suspected that all of the passengers had perished in the incident.
One user remarked, “I think we should watch all Simpsons episodes so that we can know their plans,” and another said something similar.
“The shipwreck, the submarine, and the oxygen,” one of the survivors remarked. “It is all so accurate.”
Another person yelled, “THE OXYGEN RAN OUTTTT!” in alarm.
It’s not the first time “The Simpsons” has gone viral thanks to its forecasts that turned out to be accurate. Some people believe that the episode “Marge in Chains,” which aired in 1993, accurately anticipated the Coronavirus as well as the passing of Kobe Bryant. Some people believe that other events foretold the arrival of the “murder hornets” to the coasts of America and the rioting that occurred on January 6 in the Capitol.
