Fans are adding Tom Hanks' recent coronavirus diagnosis to the never-ending list of things The Simpsons has freakishly predicted.

In their 30-plus years on the air, The Simpsons has become something of a prophetic franchise, with several series plot points that became, to various degrees, a reality. Among the series' weirdest and wildest predictions were the winners of several Super Bowls, the Siegfried and Roy tiger attack, and, most recently, Donald Trump's presidential election.

Because of The Simpsons' track record for calling the future sometimes decades before it happens, fans are now freaking out about what they see as an uncanny link between Tom Hanks' cameo in 2007's The Simpsons Movie and his coronavirus quarantine after he and his wife, Rita Wilson, tested positive for the virus.

At one point in the film, the Cast Away star appears in an advertisement for a new Grand Canyon being built in Springfield.

During the end credits of the movie, Hanks, voicing himself, has a little something extra to say.

Many are taking this gag as a prediction of Hanks' COVID-19 diagnosis. But while there have certainly been a few shocking parallels between The Simpsons' plot lines and real-life events, the connection between Hanks' quarantine and the PSA-style cameo is pretty thin.

First of all, Hanks isn't ill in The Simpsons Movie, he's simply using his credibility to help out the government and advertise the new Grand Canyon that will replace Springfield.

It's easy to see how the parallels between the movie's quarantine situation and Hanks' predicament might have some crossover, but it's a weak link at best. Not only does the dialogue in question sound like something just about every famous person says about going out in public, but the circumstances of the quarantine are also drastically different.

The cameo and Hanks' current status actually mirrors some of The Simpsons' other softer predictions, like the three-eyed fish Bart found near a Springfield power plant during a 1990 episode mirroring three-eyed fish that was discovered in a reservoir in Argentina near a nuclear power plant nearly a decade later.
