The Simpsons recreate Pink Floyd album cover

An inflatable 'spider pig' flies over Battersea Power Station

Creators of ‘The Simpsons Movie’ have recreated the cover of Pink Floyd‘s 1977 album ‘Animals’ to promote the film’s DVD release tomorrow (December 19).

The original Pink Floyd cover features a pig flying over London‘s Battersea Power Station. As an homage to the cover, a giant inflatable ‘Spider Pig’, which was Homer Simpson‘s pet in the film, was recently blown up and flown over the London landmark.

The Simpsons have recreated famous album covers in the past, including Nirvana‘s ‘Nevermind’ and The Beatles ‘Abbey Road’.
