When pop culture phenomenons collide: On The Simpsons’ annual “Treehouse of Horror” episode – which aired last night, bringing relief of all us still dealing with Halloween withdrawal – Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe voiced a vampire character named Edmund, who, naturally, closely resembled a certain Twilight hero, even if his green eyes weren’t so golden. (And even if he couldn’t quite convince Lisa to transform into a fellow immortal being: “Eight forever? Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I can’t spend eternity using kids’ scissors. They barely cut anything!”) But there wasn’t just a two-part pop culture collision on The Simpsons last night – Radcliffe, and The Simpsons’ writer room, also managed to work in a reference to Tommy Wiseau’s great cult masterpiece, The Room. (Or was it a Rebel Without a Cause reference? I choose to believe the former, since the scene involved a character named “Lisa.” But perhaps that’s because I’m on my third scotchka. Not really.) My mind is so blown, it’s as if I was sitting on an atomic bomb waiting for it to go off! Click the jump to see the clip:
