Banksy Directs The Simpsons Intro, Things Get Dark, Fast


Banksy, the world renowned and mysterious graffiti artist is going mainstream, but that doesn’t make his political statements any less pointed.

He was (somehow) contacted and put in charge of designing the famous “Couch Intro” sequence to The Simpsons that accompanies every episode. After a relatively tame opening, the couch scene itself is very dark, and speaks to the subpar labor conditions in Asia, and is so outspoken about it, I’m shocked Fox actually let this go to air. It did go to air right? I haven’t watched The Simpsons in like five years.

Check it out above. That music is going to haunt my dreams.
