Is this the creepiest Simpsons opening sequence ever?

Unlike 99.99 per cent of TV shows (and by this we mean any that aren't True Detective), The Simpsons is worth watching for the opening credits alone.

From couch gags to Bart’s chalkboard musings, evolving to the glossy opening sequence we see today, it’s hard to remember an episode in which that first minute hasn’t felt fresh.

No more so than in recent years, as giants of visual culture like Banksy and Sylvain Chomet have all had a stab at it. And if you enjoyed the latter's, you'll be pleased to know another brilliant French animator is in on the act...

Entitled Weird Simpsons VHS, this fanatically eerie tribute to the show’s 25th anniversary comes from artist Yoan Hervo, who hasn’t done this officially for Matt Groening and his team, but we can’t help thinking they'd be impressed.

In fact such is its goulish effect, making us feel as if we just ate a Ribwich and washed it down with a Flaming Moe, if the show has another Halloween House Of Horror coming up, they know who to call.

Sign him up.
