On October 21, the latest Simpsons episode will show an intro

created by Banksy :


"It's the first time an artist has been invited to storyboard part of the show and when you see it, you'll be shocked that he made it past the network executives.  Amazing, quite dark, and incredibly complex." WoosterCollective says... and they're dead right !


from the BBCnews :
  "Banksy creates new Simpsons title sequence"
from the Guardian (October 11) :
"Banksy takes Simpsons into sweatshop"


Watch ITV short report - Though the picture is identical...

the video is different  :-)   


The transcript is in the red folder  -click !


Actually the artist had already sprayed a parody of the Simpsons :

In conclusion, here is an 08'03" video I found on YouTube channel. Actually it is rather a slide show which displays numerous spray paintings and graffiti he made in many countries. I hope you'll like them -I think they're worth watching :-)



Well... this short trip throughout Banksy's sprayed art and ideas is over... for now ! I hope you've enjoyed it and you'll find these websources useful  : don't hesitate to send your feedback in a comment :o)

Well, if you know a lot of things on the Simpsons, I'm interested, Thomas : why not do a short presentation to the class, later on ? It would be great

It's very original. One would say that it is a real character

MM 26/10/2010 23:29

Yes, Justine, this mural looks like reality : it looks as if the little boy was a real one ! Banksy often paints very realistic scenes, as for example these murals :



I hope you'll enjoy them too
