‘Simpsonize Me’ Fails to Meet Usual High Standards for ‘Simpsons’ Online Crap

In New York's continuing efforts to let you know about every arm of the ever-metastasizing Simpsons-movie marketing campaign, we gave a test run this morning to Simpsonize Me, the new fast-food-chain-sponsored Website that allows you to transform an uploaded photograph into a Simpsonized version of yourself.

Yourself … or the head of programming at NBC! Would Simpsonize Me improve on our version of wunderkind Ben Silverman, generated via the Simpsons Character Generator (with a little help from Photoshop)?

Alas, apparently Homer Simpson was given the task of coding Simpsonize Me, because inputting a photo of Silverman yielded horrifying results.

His tanned, beautiful visage was horribly transformed into a Picasso-esque nightmare, with eyes, nose, and devilish eyebrows jammed into the corner of his face!

We're steering clear of uploading our own face into Simpsonize Me until they put Professor Frink in charge.
