In a recent episode of “The Simpsons” entitled “A Totally Fun Thing Bart Will Never Do Again” (Season 23, Episode 19) that aired April 29th, noted architect Rem Koolhaas made a brief guest appearance. In the scene, he is seen teaching and lecuring a group of students, while working as an architecture instructor. Koolhaas, as seen in the above image, sports a half-bald hairstyle and is holding a few LEGO bricks, probably attempting to fix the rear of the building. Hmm, LEGOs and architecture; that sounds crazy enough to work (see exhibits A and B). Now that Koolhaas has appeared in animated form on television, I wonder if this could lead and/or persuade other architects from appearing in episodes of The Simpsons, Family Guy, Regular Show, or maybe even WWE RAW? Imagine Frank Gehry using a model of one of his buildings to shine reflected light in the eyes of The Miz, preventing him from winning an important match! WILD THEORIES!!!
