If you think this NSA scandal is a recently developed idea, think again, as even “The Simpsons Movie” from 2007 predicted the NSA spying on people.

When Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie are en route to Seattle to drop the news about the plot to destroy Springfield, Marge tries to control Bart, telling him to keep a low profile.

“I don’t know if you guys should be talking so loud,” Lisa whispers to Marge.

“Oh Lisa, it’s not like the government is listening to everybody’s conversations,” her mother replies.

Instantly, the man sitting in front of them pops up with red eyes that flash and signal the National Security Agency headquarters, a building full of government officials sitting stockpiled in a room eavesdropping on everyday conversations.

While the first two monitored conversations are mild and normal mannered like ones you’d hear on a regular basis, the third is the Simpsons’, to which the government employee listening ecstatically exclaims:

“Hey everybody, I found one! The government actually found someone we’re looking for!”

This clip was hilarious until this week’s revelations came out. Check out the video below!
