To encourage businesses of all shapes and sizes to use their TrueView advertising program, YouTube has put out a new video featuring Homer Simpson. It uses footage from the "Mr. Plow" episode of The Simpsons -- aired in 1992 (fourth season) -- but in this version, Lisa uploads her father's snowplow commercial on YouTube. In the original episode, Lisa coaxed Homer into buying ad-space on late night local television.
"YouTube isn’t just a place for brands with primetime budgets, it has become a powerful tool for small and medium businesses too," posts the YouTube For Business channel. "If it works for Homer Simpson, it can work for you. YouTube video ads help your small business succeed on the web, just like Mr. Plow."
Check out the ad in the video below.
The Simpsons, which is in its 27th season, airs Sunday nights on Fox.
