For the first time in more than two decades, Homer and his family have been given a make-over. This time to go abroad to a whole new continent. According to an Angolan Advertising Agency, in charge of the new looks, the entire family has been recoloured so as to adapt more easily to their new environment in a promotional shot. Their yellow skin has been replaced with a much darker brown skin. Marge’s hair has been darkened to a jet black afro hairdo. Lisa’s hair, on the other hand, is now braided.
However, it is believed the family will keep their traditional yellow look when the series airs on digital service DStv next month.
