A giant doughnut stands along the road that passes through this tiny town. Coated in a shiny pink glaze and speckled with sprinkles, the doughy delight looks identical to Homer Simpson’s favorite snack. And this quirky roadside attraction is indeed tied to The Simpsons.
American movie studio 20th Century Fox gifted the strange statue’s ill-fated predecessor to the community in 2007 to promote the premiere of The Simpsons Movie, as the New Zealand town shares a name with the fictional town the iconic cartoons inhabit.
