A little while ago it came out that some of the cast of Glee was going to do voices for an upcoming Zombie Simpsons episode. “Ho-hum and on to the next item”, I thought to myself. But eagle eyed reader Alice noticed something else:
‘Elementary School Musical’, which airs Sunday, September 26, sees Lisa attend performing arts camp, where the Glee stars are fellow campers.
Where have I heard that title before? Oh, right. Calling something “Elementary School Musical” isn’t the world’s most cunning play on “High School Musical”, but at the same time, South Park did it two years ago. Either Zombie Simpsons didn’t notice, which means they’re disconnected from the culture they’re supposed to be parodying; or they did notice and don’t care, which means that they’re lazy and apathetic. It’s not like “Elementary School Musical” is the only play here. “Grade School Musical” is the same joke without making you look like a bunch of disconnected hacks.
