Banksy Directs The Simpsons Intro

posted in: KRTV | 11


Legendary street artist, Banksy has recently collaborated with The Simpsons and directed the opening sequence of this past weekend’s episode. It was quite a surprise, this being the first time Fox has ever given the creative reigns of the intro to an artist. It starts off as a normal episode with some Banksy tags throughout Springfield, then it takes a dark turn exaggerating the harsh reality behind manufacturing of mainstream merchandise.

What do you think about this new adaptation of The Simpsons intro?

    Banksy! So FN what,I would have never noticed if he didn’t spell his name all over everything.Where were the stencils he’s so famous for?

    It would have been a better use of 90 seconds if he would have had the Simpsons family scrubbing down the walls he has defaced in the name of art.

    I'm glad I repeated myself there. This is what happens when you write a comment when your first wake up.

    I thought it was great, I saw it on the BanksyFilm channel on youtube before I saw it on The Simpsons. I thought it was great, and then finding out it was used on an episode was even better.
