Bansky directs dark, socially conscious, Simpsons opener

British artist & activist Bansky directed the opening sequence of the Simpsons recently and its pretty dark. But kudos for him and the Simpsons for showcasing some uncomfortable aspects of our consumerist culture. -MA (via TreeHugger)

The extended opening sequence, used in the episode MoneyBart, is said to have been inspired by reports the hit Fox show outsources animation to a company in South Korea.

Banksy has claimed his storyboard led to delays, disputes over broadcast standards and a threatened walk out by the Simpsons animation department.

"This is what you get when you outsource," joked The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean.
