Bulls are taking the reins of bitcoin price action across the board, making a solid breakout above the USD 60,000 threshold, hitting new all-time highs and it looks like The Simpsons “did it again.” In a new episode airing on Sunday, BTC is highlighted in a ticker news feed with the infinite sign.
Gamestop Stock can also be seen in the episode
The 18th episode entitled “Burger Kings” in Season 32 of the popular animated series featured bitcoin (BTC) on a newscast, whose news feed ticker at the bottom of the screen featured a number of US listed companies.
However, what caught the attention of the crypto community, and which was a hot topic in the Reddit sub-forums, is BTC’s detail priced at infinity.
Interestingly, after bitcoin’s quote, video game store Gamestop (GME) appeared in the scene.
Echoing the sarcastic style characterized by The Simpsons, the famous stock – which was known to be sparked by a community of investors in Reddit a few months ago – posted a trillion in profits and then immediately dropped two million, a parody on the high volatility of the stock.
The plot of the episode revolves around Mr. Burns ending up in a plant-based burger business. He was about to die after eating a lot of burgers, and that’s how the business idea came to him.
While the episode doesn’t talk about cryptocurrencies, it’s about the concepts of the financial markets, such as speculation, as Marge began speculating in shares of Burns’s brand-new company. She wanted to make a profit to give Homer a new pair of pants.
Previous mentions of cryptos in The Simpsons
This isn’t the first time one of the world’s famous animated sitcoms has mentioned cryptocurrencies in one of its episodes.
For the 13th episode of the 31st season, The Simpsons brought in Jim Parsons, best known for Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory, to explain the concept of cryptos.
At the time of writing, according to markets.Bitcoin.com, bitcoin is trading hands at $ 63,200, with a market cap of $ 1.18 trillion.
