The Simpsons fans are convinced Tom Hanks’ coronavirus diagnosis was predicted by his cameo in the 2007 movie.
The 63-year-old made an appearance in the animation, which also foresaw Donald Trump becoming president and The Shard being built.
During his scene, The Forrest Gump star advertises a new Grand Canyon.
Appearing in the ad, he claims ‘the US government has lost its credibility so it’s borrowing some of mine.’
‘This is Tom Hanks saying if you see me in person, please, please leave me be,’ he continued.
The actor and his wife revealed on Thursday that they had tested positive for the condition while in Australia, and had decided to self-isolate.
The Cast Away star said they suffered from aches, chills, and colds.
And while the theory might seem a bit far-fetched, fans think it is The Simpsons’ way of predicting Tom’s isolation.
It wasn’t long ago that The Simpsons fans believed that the show predicted the outbreak in 1993.
Taking to social media one fan tweeted: ‘The Simpsons predicted The Coronavirus and Tom Hanks self-quarantine in 2 separate episodes? That show has predicted so many things!’
Another commented: ‘The Simpsons also nailed the prediction of Tom Hanks being quarantined.’
While others appeared to agree: ‘LMAO The Simpsons predicted Tom Hanks would catch the coronavirus?’
Someone else said: ‘So now the Simpsons predicted Tom Hanks getting the coronavirus too… wtf.’
Another asked: ‘Can the Simpson’s predict the solution to the virus and Tom hanks.’
