Well, you know that the Spanish national team has made an impact when even The Simpsons choose to feature them! Though nothing has been officially confirmed, there is this image (above) floating around the Internet of our world champions as they would look on the TV show. So, it’s not yet known whether someone just decided to draw them like this, or if they will actually be on the show, but it’s still a great picture, in more ways than one!
First of all, this line-up includes Cesc, not a habitual starter, Silva, who didn’t play much, and only three defenders (making it a 3-5-2 lineup). Some of the characteristics of our players – Puyol’s hair, Piqué’s wide mouth, Sergio’s hair and teeth, Villa’s soul patch – are true to life. I love that Puyol’s hair even covers his eyes, that Torres looks like he’s eight years old, and that Xavi, Villa and Iniesta actually look like their real life counterparts. But Silva’s huge smile is a bit strange, as is Villa’s little smile. What are you favorite parts?
Update: Cesc tweeted about this, “how handsome is Carles Puyol in the caricature of The Simpsons…”
Piqué replied that the depiction of Carles is “incredible” but the most “heavy” one is Andrés! He’s spectacular! And Cesc’s response to Geri was that he and Piqué were the most boss-like!
