Banksy does The Simpsons

Simpsonsnewcrop.jpg

That Banksy, eh? Always up to something. This time he's created The Simpsons opening title sequence for the show that aired in the US, yesterday.

The intro opens with the street artist's tag scribbled across Springfield as Bart gets down to his usual opening scene punishment. It ends with a minute-long sequence showing sweatshop workers in a warehouse painting cartoon cells and making Simpsons merchandise. They're even throwing kittens into a chipper to provide stuffing for Bart dolls.

Apparently the storyboard led to a threatened walk out by the animation department. The episode, called MoneyBart, will be shown in the UK on 21 October. Check it out below.
