Simpsons Opening by Banskyfilm

Taking a break from studying for a bit, decided to post this, since I just saw it and thought it was quite awesome.  It's really weird and a bit shocking and thought provoking.  What do you think?

I saw this the other day. I died laughing! I always wondered how they made their merch.

Hotsaucer said...

Wow, I can't believe Fox gave the "go-ahead" for this. I didn't find it offensive or anything, but I can understand that quite a few people could.

<3 Banksy

i saw it on youtube the other day, and it made me laugh.
everytime i see a show that defies the rules of politically correct and gets away with it, i regain hope in freedom of speech in our society.

funkotron77 said...

Wow! The Simpsons trying to be political I suppose? All the other shows are doing it (Family Guy, South Park) lol

What god damn heroes of the information generation... I'm starting to notice alot of common themes in various films and shows and music that all seem to coincide with the reality of capitalism... Which worries me even more, as we have all grown up knowing every diamond, fur, car, soda, electronic upgrade for a slightly less good version... We know all of this will rape and enslave entire countries that we never have to see, most won't have to do the shooting, and only a few rich monarchy's do the decisions. We know all of this...

And I still drink Mountain Dew.

Got to love the Simpsons for not being afraid to say something that upsets people.
