The wait is over. Last week, fans of The Weeknd were given a small teaser of the artist’s appearance on The Simpsons.

As episode 721 of the 33rd season, “Bart the Cool Kid” sees The Weeknd as Orion and Darius Hughes as it shines a satirical light on today’s influencer generation as well as recent streetwear fashion trends. While many of the situations in the episode are more applicable to a younger audience or those relatively new to streetwear, it’s still an interesting commentary that longtime streetwear fans know all too well, having lived through it.

In one scene, Bart is shocked to learn that Orion, owner of the hyped skate brand “Slipreme,” has no interest in skateboarding, nor even knows how to skate. The brand starts to lose its cool factor once the middle-aged demographic, led by Homer, starts wearing it. There are even knock-offs of the brand’s signature sneaker, the Caliphates.

Those interested can catch some of The Weeknd’s voice acting skills in the clips below.
