The Simpsons Predicted Tom Hanks’ Quarantine!


Between ‘Space Jam,’ ‘The Simpsons’ and a psychic’s book from 2008 — did pop culture predict the Coronavirus?

Exclusives from #ETonline :



  1. Tom Hanks son sure does have pretty satanic tattoos doesn't he, more reason you shouldn't listen to these people they're using actors to sell bulshit to you… Corona

  2. Is it just me or does anyone else find it strange that 'Covid' translated into Hebrew is 'Kobe'?… Just saying! 🤷🏽‍♀️

  3. KIM KARDASHIAN. a FAMOUS DUMBO and MORON is giving medical advice..OMG.. she can talk about all het implants ONLY!

  4. This is so fucking dumb. I hope people aren't taking these "predictions" seriously. The Simpsons one is so vague, all Hanks says is he wants to be left alone. OMG PROOF CORONAVIRUS! OMG PROOF HE'S BEING QUARANTINED!

  5. Of course he has the pyramid with the eye over it in the middle of his chest. Not the type of markings your gonna want to have when shtf

  6. Wow, Tom Hanks son looks and sounds like a douche. I’m sure Tom Hanks said he’s not ‘tripping’ about it. 🙄

  7. Things or ideas which would otherwise be seen as bizarre, vulgar, undesirable or impossible are inserted into films in the realm of fantasy. When the viewer watches these films, his/her mind is left open to suggestion and the conditioning process begins. – Alan Watts.

  8. Yeah all the “virus” will disappear because it’s man made and controlled by the government they’re not fooling me

  9. to the med. professionals, gov. agencies and youtubers: it is (vastly) SAFER AND CHEAPER TO ERR ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION, therefore please "simplify" by stating clearly and without confusing caveats or digressions:

    1 – call it a asymptomatic disease i.e. say it plainly you can be infecting people without showing symptoms i.e. you might not be noticing any fever, stuffy nose, muscle pain etc.

    2 – the virus can reach 5 feet (1.5 meters) i.e. a 'safe distance' is close to 6.5 feet (2 meters) away from other people not wearing standard protective masks nor protection glasses.

    3 – the virus will stay on surfaces for 3 whole days, i. e. assume surfaces are contaminated for 100 hours. Scrub it with water and soap.

    4 – say it plainly contagion factor is high and assume FOUR people will get it for each carrier of the disease.

    5 – prevention is much preferred to treatment (say that clearly): the disease is brutal and can leave lasting damage and hospitals all over the planet are already understaffed, unequipped and unprepared.

    6 – you are infectious for more than a month. Up to five weeks is the time you might be infected (and infecting) from 1st contact to fully get rid of the disease.

    7 – testing is timely and costly: don't overburden health services by insisting to be tested i.e. If you have the symptoms assume you have the infection unless you are in a risk group and absolutely need to know to keep others in a risk group safe.

    8 – there are two strains of the virus, possibly more (today is 17th March 2020)

    9 – a vaccine is at least 1.5 years away and might be not be possible at all if a quicker vaccine makes the infection worse.

    10 – the worldwide infection is staying, we are forever changed for years not weeks. The social and economical consequences will last longer. This is a war, and we need more compassion towards each other to win it. Don't wait for you government to start helping your neighbours and endangered people.

    DISCLAIMER: the above statements are not fully accurate – and they are not meant to create more panic – but any rounding up or mild exaggeration is aimed at slowing the fast spread of this disease. Yes, there are behavioural implications and associated costs in any innacuracies but not following this is far worse and opens us up to the outliers that will keep it spreading even faster. The costs to humanity will be worse than any exageration listed above.
