Harry Styles’s unfortunate incident involving a shoe has already been given the mash-up treatment.
A video showing Styles getting hit in the crotch by a One Direction fan’s shoe has been mixed with a classic moment from The Simpsons.
The original clip made Homer Simpson laugh hysterically when it was shown at a film festival. A ‘remake’ starring George C Scott went on to win an Academy Award in the episode.
The new video was uploaded by Zoo magazine earlier today (February 27).
One Direction fan Jade Anderson has since identified herself as the person that “hit Harry in the balls” on Twitter, writing to him directly: “I’m the one that threw my shoe at you, i never meant to hurt you :-(.”
She also claimed that police warned she had “committed a criminal assault” and “could’ve killed” the 18-year-old.
Styles’s comical fall to the stage is somewhat similar to the way in which Simpsons character Hans Moleman fell over after getting hit in the groin with a football. You can see the video mash-up at the top of this article.
