The White Stripes on The Simpsons

It’s said that imitation in the sincerest form of flattery, and The Simpsons did it to The White Stripes by mimicking their “The Hardest Button to Button” music video. The show took inspiration from the super-stylized music vid and turned it into a beat-driven chase between Bart—on his new drum kit—and Meg and Jack White. The Detroit garage rockers’ timing sadly dropped them from the opening of a bridge and onto a floating garbage barge, ending their brief but fun cameo.
