[VIDEO] Banksy creates new Simpsons Intro by mozzatron

UK street artist and SME favourite Banksy has created a controversial new title sequence for The Simpsons.

The intro closes with a minute-long sequence showing dozens of sweatshop workers in a warehouse painting the cartoon and making Simpsons merchandise.

The storyboard was apparently inspired by reports the show outsources the majority of their animation to a company in South Korea.

Banksy joins an elite list of Britons who have contributed to the show, which includes Simon Cowell, Tony Blair and Ricky Gervais. However it is the first time an artist has been invited to storyboard part of the show so he is on an even more elite list on that front.

Banksy is clearly a big fan of The Simpsons, as shown by one of his pieces found in New Orleans (above) clearly inspired by the show.

The episode, called MoneyBart, will be shown in the UK on 21 October on Sky 1.

Check out the intro below:

Thank you for another great article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
