A Dark and Despairing Russian Art Film Interpretation of the Normally Cheerful Couch Gag From ‘The Simpsons’

Cartoonist Lenivko Kvadratjic of Lazy Square has interpreted the classic “Couch Gag” (previously) from the long-running animated series The Simpsons as a very dark, very dramatic and very Russian art film.

The normally cheerful, clever and colorful animated opening was transformed into a hyper-realistic setting made up of dingy colors, dour expressions, despairing music, and very violent tendencies.
