Simpsons-inspired heavy “Nedal” band Okilly Dokilly were given the biggest honor of their careers Sunday night (April 7). The Flanders-loving metallers were actually featured in an episode of The Simpsons, performing “White Wine Spritzer” during the show’s credits.
“We saw the video and knew they had to be on the show,” longtime Simpsons show runner Al Jean tells Rolling Stone. “We do not endorse their message of indiscriminate drinking of white wine spritzers.”
“Myself and everyone involved with Okilly Dokilly are so very honoured,” Okilly Dokilly’s frontman ‘Head Ned’ said of the recognition. “The fact that the ‘White Wine Spritzer’ video appeared on an episode of The Simpsons is still unreal to us. We are very excited and beyond humbled to have been a part of the show’s legacy.”
