Artists Banksy Does Controversial Opening Sequence

Simpsons News — Posted 12 Oct, 2010 by MrBurns

This past Sunday night, Simpsons fans got more than they expected from the series' "couch gag" (what happens in the intro when Homer, Marge and the kids hit the sofa before the credits), as famed, enigmatic U.K. street artist/activist Banksy directed the scene and took it in a distinctly dark direction. The extended sequence took viewers to an Asian sweat shop, where children work in toxic waste, kittens are murdered to stuff little Bart and Lisa dolls, and a malnourished unicorn is enslaved to poke holes into Simpson DVDs.

The opening was originally available on YouTube when Fox decided that it should be pulled. Shortly after, when fans became upset at Fox's actions, the video was put back online. Abused pandas, dolphins, unicorns and children await. Watch at your own risk after the jump.
