In 2016, a new genre of audio-visual art combining influence from The Simpsons and vaporwave music was created, termed as Simpsonswave. It’s essentially clips of Simpsons coupled spliced over vaporwave tracks, but the simple idea garnered viral popularity, with videos such as the above ＳＵＮＤＡＹ ＳＣＨＯＯＬ notching up over 10 million views. Editorial outlets such as Thump and Pitchfork commented on the sensation, running think pieces titled Is Simpsonwave a Real Thing? and What the Hell Is Simpsonwave? respectively.
