The newest episode of the Simpsons family had an Icelandic themed season finale. Music from Sigur Rós as well as many famous landmarks like Hallgrímskirkja, Perlan (the Pearl) and the Blue Lagoon, appeared on the show. The plot of the two-part show revolves around the character of Carl Carlson, Homer’s friend and co-worker, who sets off to visit his home country, Iceland. They were wearing the traditional Icelandic Wool Sweater and even spoke Icelandic 🙂
