Pieter Mondrian was an artist best known for neoplasticism – a grid of primary colours painted on a white background. Homer Simpson is an overweight cartoon, best known for his love of Duff beer and lax attitude towards nuclear power. So you’d be well within your rights to question the creation of a wine inspired by the odd couple.
According to Russian designers and creators Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich, the wine was first bottled in 1987 – the year The Simpsons first hit our screens. Except that there’s no guarantee there’s actually wine inside. The label on the reverse simply states ‘Wine, or maybe not’ and invites you to find out for yourself. As the man himself would say “Mmmmmmmm… something.”
If you’re a fan of Homer and Marge then this is definitely one ‘homage’ (sorry) you don’t want to miss.
