Elon Musk has pointed to a 2015 Simpsons episode, claiming it hinted at his Twitter takeover.

Simpsons predicts I buy Twitter S26 E12 [season 26, episode 12],” Musk, 51, tweeted over the weekend.

The episode, titled “The Musk Who Fell to Earth”, begins by showing Lisa Simpson tending to a bird house with a sign that reads, “Home Tweet Home.” She is feeding baby birds when a bald eagle snaps them up and kills them, Page Six reports.

As the eagle flies into the distance, Musk arrives in his rocket ship. Fire from the aircraft incinerates the eagle, a longtime emblem of the US.

“Brace yourselves, family. We are about to meet a being with intelligence far beyond ours,” Homer Simpson says before directing Bart to grab his baseball bat.

Musk takes off his space helmet and identifies himself: “Hello, I’m Elon Musk.”

Homer hurls the bat at his head. Lisa yells: “Dad, no! Elon Musk is possibly the greatest living inventor.”

The camera pans to a new technologically advanced bird house that has attracted several birds.

“I guess humanity wants its change one bird house at a time,” Lisa says as Musk gets back into his rocket.

Fans of The Simpsons are also convinced the show predicted England and America’s woeful 0-0 World Cup 2022 draw that played out Friday.

On the 1997 episode “The Cartridge Family”, the family watches a TV ad for a match that will determine “which nation is the greatest on Earth,” but just seconds into the action, Homer is heard screaming, “Boring!”

A number of other predictions that eventually came true include Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential run and Germany lifting the World Cup in 2014.
