After Homer inadvertently performs a wild crowd-pleasing dance at a local carnival, he is hired by several sports figures including Tom Brady, LeBron James, Yao Ming, Warren Sapp and Michelle Kwan to choreograph their victory dances. After his dances prove successful, Homer is soon tapped to choreograph the big show - the Superbowl Half-time Show. Meanwhile, Flanders, is disgusted by the filth on television, decides to start making Bible movies; ultra-violent, ultra-gory Bible movies ; la Passion of the Christ. The movies are very disturbing, but nonetheless a hit; until the violence becomes too gratuitous and the audience turns on him. Homer panics during planning the show and the night before Superbowl XXXVIII still has nothing - so he teams up with Flanders and they put on a nonviolent and deeply meaningful Biblical half-time show which America chastises for it's blatant display of decency.
