VIDEO: Banksy’s “Simpsons” opening is dark, entertaining

by 9 years ago

Renowned graffiti/performance artist Banksy directed the “couch scene” on last night’s episode of The Simpsons and it’s getting all sorts of attention for being ridiculously dark but visually stunning. If you like your cartoons about yellow fat men teetering on the verge of Down’s Syndrome to have a bit of social commentary added on, then this is the video for you.

That is seriously an impressive level of darkness for a show that’s been known to become a bit formulaic and trite in the past couple years. Any time you can combine a sad unicorn and an indentured servant Asian child in one serving, I’m 100-percent on board.
