‘The Simpsons’ Airs Okilly Dokilly Music Video
for “White Wine Spritzer” During Sunday Episode
Metal sensations OKILLY DOKILLY – the world’s only “Nedal” band – received the highest honor of their exponential existence to date last weekend, when iconic animated comedy The Simpsons (Fox) aired an extended clip of the band’s massive “White Wine Spritzer” music video (view music video in full here).
The video – which currently has over five million views on YouTube and counting, and skyrocketed the band into viral territory back in 2016 – aired during the closing credits of the long-running sitcom’s Sunday, April 7 episode, entitled “I’m Just a Girl Who Can’t Say D’oh”. Watch the clip here.
“Myself and everyone involved with OKILLY DOKILLY are so very honored,” says OKILLY DOKILLY frontman Head Ned. “The fact that the ‘White Wine Spritzer’ video appeared on an episode of The Simpsons is still unreal to us. We are very excited and beyond humbled to have been a part of the show’s legacy.”
Executive Producer and showrunner Al Jean comments, “We saw the video and knew they had to be on the show. We do not endorse their message of indiscriminate drinking of white wine spritzers.”

Established in 2015, Phoenix, AZ based OKILLY DOKILLY found success before even playing their first show, reaching viral phenomenon status after releasing just a few press photos and a four-song demo. Within two weeks, the band netted nearly 30,000 Facebook fans and was featured by numerous publications including Billboard, Time, The Independent, BBC, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Vice and many more. In 2016, the band released their debut album Howdilly Doodilly (stream/order here) – a 13-track catalog filled with Flanderisms, rushing guitars and more than enough left-handed puns.
“Okilly Dokilly, Phoenix’s self-professed “world’s first Nedal band,” have got you covered, kicking out righteous riffs while clad in the traditional green sweater, pink shirt, and nerdy glasses of Homer Simpson’s eternally cheerful and devoutly Christian neighbor.” – Peter Helman, Stereogum
“Their sound… is solid, formulaic metal, with soft, almost classically-voiced verses slashed by the requisite screaming choruses. Let’s just say Homer Simpson might think twice about calling them “Stupid Flanders(es)” after hearing it.” – Steve Huff, Maxim
“…we have a feeling you’ll be nodding your head faster than you can say hi-diddly-ho.” – Anthony Domanico, CNET
“My spell check is intent on correcting ‘Dokilly’ to ‘docilely’, but docile they are not, with their music revolving around crunchy, lo-fi guitar and shrill, lurching synth.” – Christopher Hooton, The Independent
OKILLY DOKILLY is currently billed as Head Ned (lead vocals, guitars, mandolin), Dread Ned (drums), Shred Ned (guitar, vocals, triangle), Bed Ned (bass) and Zed Ned (synth,vocals).
