On Saturday, FOX began advertising a new Simpsons episode titled “Specs and the City.” The episode — which openly pokes fun at Google’s latest wearable tech — begins after Mr. Burns decides to outfit his entire team with “Oogle Goggles,” not out of benevolence mind you, but to better keep tabs on his employees (wonder what they could be implying?).

It doesn’t take long for Homer to become what can only be described as a Glasshole. After going too far by taking Glass into the bedroom (sound familiar?), he’s forced to give up his Google Glass in a game of spin the Goggles. Marge — who was initially apprehensive about Oogle Goggles from the start — becomes the new recipient and soon realizes the finds the augment becoming helpful in her day-to-day life.

Not only is this episode an interesting take on how Hollywood views the new tech (it’s nerd-chic), but we can see how exposure like this has already begun shaping the views and opinions of the mainstream over the new technology. The episode ends with Marge finally taking Oogle Goggles into the bedroom and giving Mr. Burns an eyeful of a bottomless Homer. Ha.

  1. Wait, I have to pay to watch this clip?

    1. Pay or wait… is lame like that.

      “New episodes are available 8 days after airing.”

    2. I refuse to pay for a service that will still shove so many ads down your throat. I wouldn’t mind a single 30 sec ad at the beginning but it is too much for paying customers, as free users get the same amount of ads. It really pushes me towards torrents tbh. I Love their episode list though. Some great shows

    3. could be worse.
      i’d have to move to another country to watch it.

  2. found it on comcast for free

  3. Torrent here:

    Do not download this if you don’t have the rights to watch it.

  4. Who is going to where this crap?

    1. I don’t know who is going to where it, but when it comes to wearing it, I wear mine all the time. Do I need it? Not at all. Is it useful? Totes.

      1. Never use that word again….you’re not a 14 year old girl. Right?

        1. OMG! Totes never again. So 2013

  5. Google will be so honored their crap was shown in the Simpsons

  6. And there you have it, cartoon quality gear.

  7. The real Eric Schmidt is much creepier than Mr. Burns.
