In a recent episode of the long-running animated series, “The Simpsons,” viewers were treated to yet another intriguing prediction about the future, sparking conversations and curiosity across social media.

The show, known for its uncanny ability to foresee future events, hinted at a scenario involving tech mogul Elon Musk, his space ventures, and his ownership of the social media giant X (formerly Twitter).

This prediction unfolded in the fourth episode of Season 35, titled “Thirst Trap: A Corporate Love Story.” The episode revolved around a parody documentary featuring a young college dropout CEO named Persephone, voiced by Elizabeth Banks, who embodies the “fake it until you make it” ethos of Silicon Valley. Persephone successfully persuades Mr. Burns to fund her ambitious project, and the two characters eventually get married.

During one scene in the episode, Mr. Burns presents Persephone with a special birthday gift. When she questions if it’s a “Twitter gift card,” Mr. Burns surprises her by announcing, “No, I bought you Twitter, the whole company! It was a bargain; the previous owner had to sell it after his self-driving Mars rocket crashed into the international space station.” This amusing revelation suggests that in the show’s universe, Elon Musk acquired Twitter.

The episode further plays with this concept when Mr. Burns and Persephone are interviewed by media personality and “Billions” co-creator, Andrew Ross Sorkin. The interview hints at the removal of all negative Tweets about Persephone from the platform under the new ownership, adding to the satirical prediction.

Social media was quick to react to this peculiar prophecy, with many users on Musk’s X, the successor of Twitter, sharing posts to commemorate the moment in case it eventually comes to pass.

Elon Musk’s presence in “The Simpsons” is not new, as he had previously lent his voice for an episode in Season 26, titled “The Musk Who Fell to Earth.” Musk’s involvement in other animated series like “South Park” and “Rick and Morty” further highlights his interest in appearing in popular cartoons.

While it remains too early to determine whether this latest “Simpsons” prediction will join the roster of eerily accurate forecasts or become one of the few that don’t materialize, one thing seems certain: “The Simpsons” isn’t finished making bold and intriguing predictions about the future.
