We Are S.M.E


Following the mad hype around his Simpsons opening sequence, a new piece of art has popped up in Southwark by the now world-renowned, Banksy.

Banksy’s newest piece sees a hooded youth with his barking dog; we’ve all seen this stereotype in and around London!

It’s a cheeky take on the Keith Haring dog; Haring was a famous artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s.

SME RELOAD: Banksy does The Simpsons


[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:


World Cup fever starts here, trust SME! This is quite possibly the best football ad we’ve seen to date and if it doesn’t get you in the mood for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, we don’t know what will. Even Kobe Bryant and The Simpsons are excited!

“The time has come for players to carve their name in history. One touch, tackle or free kick could crush a nation’s hopes or cause them to build a statue in your honour. Drogba, Rooney and Ronaldo are ready to Write The Future.”

21 days and counting…
