Simpsons Pay Tribute To David Letterman

When David Letterman announced his retirement last week, Barack Obama was just one soul lining up to pay tribute.

But who could possibly top a commendation from the world’s most powerful man, we hear you ask? Well, now you know...

The Simpsons, of course, and for the show’s latest couch gag, Springfield's finest take to New York City, embarking on a mad spree through mid-town and breathlessly making the couch on the talk show with seconds to spare.

Even including a small reference to Letterman’s long-time musical conductor Paul Shaffer, it’s a glorious and fitting way for one bastion of US pop culture to salute another.
