Even Homer Simpson is playing Pokemon Go

Pokemon D'oh!


Is the entire world playing Pokemon Go? It feels like we’re all skulking around monuments trying to find Pokestops and nonchalantly snagging Spearows in the supermarket. All while running out of data and draining our phone batteries…


Even animated characters are getting in on the Pokemon-hunting action. Homer Simpson has well and truly caught the bug. Here he is, playing Pokemon Go at the zoo while his children Bart and Lisa fight desperately for his attention, risking their lives in the process…. 


But neither the birth of a baby giraffe or the potential mauling of his only son is enough to make Homer lift his gaze from his smart phone.

The Simpsons airs on Fox in the UK
