Extreme Makeover

An Angolan advertising agency has given Homer Simpson and his family an African makeover.

The Simpsons, broadcast in more than 90 countries, have always been portrayed as yellow but the advertising agency decided to turn them brown in a promotional video aired by Africa's digital satellite TV service DSTV in Angola.

Homer, Marge, Lisa and Bart are portrayed as Africans sitting on their over-used family couch. The family is shown wearing African-inspired clothing and their living room has little more than two huge loud speakers. Even Homer's cherished beer has been replaced by Cuca, the Budweiser of Angola.

The creative director of Executive Centre, Antonio Pascoa, said: "Our goal was to adapt the satirical parody of the typical middle-class American family to Angola.
