How to Unlock Secret Item in The Simpsons Tapped Out

Last night during an episode of The Simpsons, something interesting came on aside from Homer trying to strangle Bart — a commercial for the new iPad app, The Simpsons Tapped Out. The game is your basic Farmville-style game where you harvest and build different structures via timed events, but set in the classic world of Springfield. During the commercial, an interesting thing was presented – how to unlock a secret item and get free in-game donuts. Finally, something good comes from watching television. So, how is it done you may ask? Read on to find out.

In order to unlock the secret item in Tapped Out you need to simply tap on Homer Simpson ten times. Make sure to have the sound on as tapping on Homer makes him giggle which is always good for a chuckle. After tapping away, you will get a mystery item, which is the statue of Jebediah Springfield, as well as ten free in-game donuts to purchase items or speed up actions in the game. So, go grab the app — which is free — and start tapping on Homer for your free and secret goods.
