Simpsons Paint The Town Yellow

Look in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a yellow Empire State Building?

In one of the biggest DVD promotions this year, 20th Century Fox is kicking off Tuesday's DVD release of "The Simpsons Movie" with events in cities around the country.

At the top of the list is New York, and the city's most famous landmark will be turned yellow. Bryant Park will host an ice show featuring a 25-foot inflatable Homer hand and 2,500 mega-donut balloons, and Times Square street teams will distribute yellow Santa hats and line 42nd Street with balloons.

How will anyone find the taxis?? In Los Angeles, holiday elves wearing yellow Santa hats will hand out pink-frosted D'oh!Nut sprinkles to commuters downtown (so, bums….) while in Hollywood a "Simpsons" holiday spectacular will have inflatable Homer Santas, pink-flocked Christmas trees and donut balloons.

In 20 cities, including Salt Lake City, Honolulu and El Paso, pink donut Mylar balloons will be tied to parking meters at high-traffic shopping areas, signifying free parking. You can keep the donuts! Free parking at this time of year is treat enough!
