The Simpsons

I totally love the Simpsons. It's one of those shows that I can watch, even if I haven't watched it in a while. Last night, the opening was down right creepy, thought-provoking-perfect, with the opening credits story board created by artist Banksy. The credits start out normally and then shift to this underground world that touches on child labor and dying dreams (there's a dying unicorn put to work) Take a peek at the opening and let me know what you think in the comments. 

Update: The old video was taken down, so here is the full episode, with the Banksy opening. I promise it's totally cool and kind of Halloween-y. 







In 2008, Banksy created this piece in a neighborhood in london.

Viewed the video on twitvid and 3 words: Banky is amazing.
I wonder if we'll ever discover what he looks like...

@kristen, it's up now, but I will check out twitvid and maybe switch the feed.

@BC, I don't know, not knowing what he looks like is a part of the art of his work just popping up unexpectedly.
