Banksy Storyboarded and Directed Opening of The Simpsons

UK street artist Banksy storyboarded and directed the extremely dark opening sequence of tonight’s episode of The Simpsons. Wooster Collective notes that this is probably “one of the most closely guarded secrets in TV history”.

UPDATE 1: TechCrunch is reporting that the old media dinosaurs at Fox yanked the video from Banksy’s YouTube account. It’s up on Hulu now where you can still see it, assuming of course you are located in the US.

UPDATE 2: NY Times talks to Al Jean, an executive producer of The Simpsons to get the scoop on the Banksy intro.

UPDATE 3: The Banksy intro is back up on YouTube.
