RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper, star of THEY LIVE

I just got word that Rowdy Roddy Piper has passed away today, at 61, from a heart attack.
Not much to say about this, it doesn’t have a real Simpsons connection, but we did recast his awesome movie, THEY LIVE, as one of our first projects.

I wanted to share it now again, because this pro wrestler meant a lot to me as a kid, coming to terms with the dispassionate world we live in.

We're all out of Hot Rod now

Kicked Ass. Chewed Gum.
