GTA Online Player Recreates The Simpsons' Iconic Pink Car In-Game

GTA Online player just shared their rendition of the car owned by The Simpsons family. The iconic pink car, seen in the opening credits scene of the show, now has its own in-game version, alongside a user-made version of the mischievous Bart Simpson.

GTA Online users have always been a community for creating unique pop culture references and designs utilizing the game's car and character customization options. The character creator, which allows for detailed control over a character's complexion, hair, and facial structure, often inspires gamers to make celebrities and famous characters in the game. Likewise, the body shop gives players large amounts of control over the appearance of their vehicles, giving options to customize everything from color to roofs and bumpers. With so many creative outlets available to players, it's no surprise that the GTA Online community is full of users inspired to recreate their favorite characters, like one player who coordinated a GTA Online bank robbery with Scooby-Doo characters.

Reddit user TheRealBigSmoke99 shared their own brilliant creation on Reddit this week, showing off their recreation of Bart Simpson and the family's iconic car in GTA Online. Both the car and character are dead ringers for their intended references - although this version of Bart is much taller due to character creation limitations, the adult version still matches the iconic 10 year-old. The car even includes a reference to a classic Simpsons joke from Season 6, wherein Homer is fooled into thinking bullet holes on a car are actually "speed holes" which will make it go faster. He then goes home and tries to install some on his own vehicle, a detail which TheRealBigSmoke99 has included here. This Redditor is far from the first to reference the classic sitcom in a video game; one Animal Crossing player recreated The Simpsons' Steamed Hams meme just last month.

It's not always easy to recreate a cartoon in a game with a realistic graphical style, even with a game that offers extensive customization settings like GTA Online. TheRealBigSmoke99 expressed that they had some difficulty with the finer points of the design, such as finding the perfect shade of pink for Homer's car utilizing the game's RGB color wheel, and finding a vehicle that fit The Simpsons car archetype in both shape and number of doors. Despite these small hiccups, Reddit users were immediately impressed by the creator's attention to detail and utilization of GTA Online's features, showering the user with well-deserved praise in the comments.

Creative player communities, like the ones remaking Squid Game challenges in GTA Online, are one of the biggest driving forces for the longevity and popularity of games like GTA Online. Gamers become inspired by the creations of others to make their own unique characters and designs, which can help games feel fresh and new even after years on the market. When users reference fan favorites in popular culture, like this Simpsons masterpiece, interest in creating new in-game content is magnified even more. Time will tell what the community will produce next.
