Two Swiss Tourist Girls Go To New Orleans Only To Recreate “The Simpsons” Scenes (31 pics)

Katrin von Niederhäusern and her friend Janine, both of whom consider themselves to be devoted fans of The Simpsons, one day decided to leave their home in Switzerland and head on an adventurous trip to New Orleans with a purpose to recreate the rich culinary montage from "Lisa Gets the Blues", the 17th episode of the series' 29th season in 2018. In this episode, Lisa is discouraged from playing the saxophone and The Simpsons who end up in New Orleans decided to cheer her up by going to Jazz Fest. While Lisa regains her confidence, Homer discovers the amazing drinks and local foods which New Orleans has to offer. The women hilariously recreate each scene while one tries to copy Homer and the other plays the different characters within the scene.


"We just love both so much: New Orleans and The Simpsons. So when in this one episode, both things got combined, we got so excited, we decided to make a homage to it. After googling, we found out that those 54 restaurants exist in real life. And what we admire so much is how accurately detailed the makers of The Simpsons are. Everything looks just like it. So impressive."


"Even though we planned ahead a lot, there were still some obstacles during filming: a restaurant was closed on Sundays, a restaurant was closed forever, the dish was not on the menu anymore, the dish was out of season, the dish was never on the menu, the restaurant was under construction, another one was closed for the summer break. In one of the restaurants, the sign was not as in the cartoon on the window, but it was on the main entrance of the restaurant... The door, where every customer comes in. So to still have the right shot and perspective, we needed to convince the restaurant owner that we can set up our camera and a whole table just right in the front of the entrance door. Thank you Emeril's for letting us do that."

"But the biggest challenge was to imitate Homer! A man with great charm but not so great manners. We had to lie on the table, sit on the floors, eat with fingers, eat with the whole hand, lick the plates, and put shrimps and a ton of fries in our mouth. Everything under the constant observation of the other – very disturbed – restaurant guests."
