Banksy does The Simpsons couch-gag!

The world famous and wildly elusive Brittish street artist Banksy created the best Simpsons couch-gag in the history of the animated show. Simpsons producers reached out the Banksy through the producers of his film 'Exit Through the Gift Shop.' Banksy took credit for creating the storyboards that animators used to create the couch gag. Banksy must be a fan of the show, he even made a great grafitti art on the side of a building in New Orleans a couple of years ago of a real-life bart simpson writing on the chalkboard. 

In the couch-gag, Banksy depicts the whole animation process as being done in some dark basement and under the eye of slavedrivers. The Simpsons toys and action figures are made of dead kitten fur, and the DVD holes are punctured by a chained  and tired Unicorn. Brilliant work by a Brilliant artist! Here is a link to the opening couch-gag.
