Though little noticed at the time that it aired, a brief bit mocking French President Nicolas Sarkozy and First Lady Carla Bruni in a recent episode of 'The Simpsons' has become an Internet sensation in France, the Telegraph reports.
The couples' appearance, in the November 15th episode entitled "The Devil Wears Nada," apparently flew under the radar until this weekend, when clips of the appearance became a viral sensation, according to the Independent.
Their cameos were unauthorized, perhaps because the parody of them was particularly mocking.
In the episode, Homer and his friend Carl Carlson visit Paris, where they bump into Bruni at a party. After some brief chit-chat she tells Carl, "I want to make love, right now."
Sarkozy's segment is more brief, and consists of him saying what may become the immortal line, "You're getting cozy with Sarkozy," when picking up the telephone.
