The Simpsons in Springfield, Vermont

The mystery has been solved! The Simpsons are from Vermont.

Okay, actually, Vermont apparently had the best video according to online voters who were allowed to decide which Springfield would hold the premiere for the upcoming Simpsons movie. The town, with a population of 9,500, created a video with a Homer Simpson look-alike chasing a giant donut through town. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the town even features a nuclear power plant nearby.

Congrats to Springfield, Vermont!

I am one of 200 volunteers who appeared in the winning Springfield Vermont video. After we helped them win, our local Chamber of Commerce turned its back on us. We were excluded from the invitation list, our seats awarded to the elite in town instead. And not even a word of thanks or mention of us in the public ceremony outside the theater.
