Banksy Directs Dark Opening For 'The Simpsons' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Last night "The Simpsons" didn't open up with their usual couch gag.

According to Wooster.com, elusive street artist Banksy directed and storyboarded the opening to the show last night, which featured a dark portrayal of laborers in Asian countries working on "Simpsons" animation and merchandise. Banksy's tag can also be found on several Springfield landmarks throughout the opening.

The intro is a far cry from typical "Simpsons" fare and features some very disturbing commentary, including a dying unicorn enslaved to punch holes in the middle of "Simpsons" DVDs.

Further proving that he was involved, Banksy has uploaded the sardonic intro to his YouTube page. (Via The Daily What)
