An AI-generated clip of Homer Simpson singing Arctic Monkeys’ ‘R U Mine?’ has gone viral. Earlier this year, a fan took to social media to share their collaboration of The Beatles and The Beach Boys, depicting the iconic 1966 Beach Boys track, ‘God Only Knows’ being played in the style of Paul McCartney, John Lennon and co.
It has been noted that Homer’s footage was developed using artificial intelligence by the TikTok user going by the handle Meme Music, and shows the hit 2013 song by the Sheffield indie legends recreated featuring Homer Simpson-style vocals.
The clip also comes with an accompanying Simpsons-style music video, pieced together from various episodes of the show and showing Homer and co. performing the ‘AM’ hit to a crowd in a small music venue.
“Never thought I’d hear Homer with a Sheffield accent but here we are,” one user wrote in the comments. Another added: “Why is this lowkey better than the original?”.
Less than one day after sharing the clip, the moment has already proved to be a hit with Simpsons and Arctic Monkeys fans alike, and has gained over 10,000 likes and 1000 saves.
