Capitalizing on the popularity of the incredibly successful television cartoon The Simpsons, the voice of the globally popular character Bart Simpson has been used to promote a Scientology event in Los Angeles.
The voice of Bart Simpson, Nancy Cartwright, has used her famous cartoon character’s name and voice to create a recorded phone pitch to people in which she says: "This is Bart Simpson," before saying she’s just kidding and identifying herself correctly.
Cartwright, who is scheduled to be a guest speaker at the event, then continues speaking in the voice of Bart Simpson while announcing the Scientology event. "It’s gonna be a blast, man!" she says, followed by the trademark Bart Simpson laugh.
She then asks listeners to call and confirm their attendance at the Hollywood event.
A lot of people are ‘having a cow’ over this, so much so that the issue even received air time on breakfast radio programs in Australia this morning.
