Qatar 2022 World Cup organizers have added their own twist by making the artificial cloud remote controlled - maybe inspired by TV show The Simpsons.

With June and July temperatures in the Gulf state capable of reaching as much as 50 degrees Celsius, the Qataris have come up with a system for blocking the worst extremes of the Middle Eastern sun.

Scientists at Qatar University announced plans this week to develop artificial clouds that will be positioned in the sky to provide shade and help reduce the heat in stadiums for the 2022 World Cup.

The mechanical clouds proposed would be made from lightweight carbon and hover high above an open-air stadium, shielding the sun's rays in an attempt to control ground temperature.

It is understood that the last "person" to attempt such a feat was Simpsons character C. Montgomery Burns, who erected a giant shield over Springfield which plunged the city into darkness - forcing residents to pay more for electricity.
