Ned Flanders-Themed Band Okilly Dokilly Made It Onto The Simpsons

Dreams do come true, as Ned Flanders-themed metal acts Okilly Dokilly found out when they were featured in the credits of The Simpsons.

In case you’re either a serious metal fan or not a Simpsons super-fan, Okilly Dokilly is a Nedal” act that plays hardcore-influenced death metal while dressed as Ned Flanders. And while this might seem ridiculous to some, it shouldn’t, because as of this Sunday, the dudes on Okilly are living their dream: they’ve been featured in an episode of The Simpsons. 

The band’s video for their song White Wine Spritzer (a play on the drink that leads poor Neddy astray) was used as the end-credits sequence of The Simpsons the other night, marking Okilly Dokilly as more accomplished than you will ever be. Take a look:

Said producer Al Jean about the cameo, We saw the video and knew they had to be on the show. We do not endorse their message of indiscriminate drinking of white wine spritzers.”

Obviously, this is huge for…Simpsons themed metal band. Hats off to Okilly for making most of our dreams become a reality. 

The band’s new album, Howdilly Twodilly, is out now. To be baptized in white wine spritzers live, you can catch the band at one of the following dates:
