Homer using a gif of Homer is pure Simpsonsception – the only 9 reactions you need to read
Most of us have had cause to use the gif of Homer Simpson backing slowly into a hedge – it’s great for an embarrassing moment or to take down a public figure who’s done something they’d prefer us all to forget. When the Simpsons’ official Twitter account shared a clip of an episode in which Homer himself used it, it blew everyone’s minds.
This is the tweet that changed our perception of the Simpsonsverse.

And these are the best reactions we’ve seen.
So who was filming Homer in that episode so that the footage exists to be turned into a gif in the Simpsons universe?
This is now what I think about. https://t.co/6WZJkti8xl

And one Twitter user gave it a very backhanded compliment.
First time I laughed hard at this show in years.
