Underground graffiti artist "Banksy" designed last night's "The Simpsons" opening...
 

 
The Simpsons has always been known to be the "subversive" or "controversial" cartoon before the likes of "South Park" or "Family Guy". This was the one that got angry letters from Parents... But, over the past few years, "The Simpsons" and it's cultural commentary has fallen into a rut, it's not exactly paying off like it did in the 90's... Maybe that's because its style of satire was applicable in the 90's, and not now.... Well, I have a feeling that is about to change.

Banksy, is some of you might know, is a really prolific (if elusive) graffiti artist based in the UK... Here are samples of some of his work:

Banksy has been around for years. His identity remains anonymous. No one really knows who he is. The closest glimpse of him was through the critically adored documentary HE directed earlier in the year called "Exit Through The Gift Shop". So, when the creators of "The Simpsons" commissioned him to direct an opening sequence for the show, it was supposed to be a stark message about the network (Fox) trying to outsource its animation to foreign countries... And, oh boy, is it courting all kinds of controversy... Watch for yourself, and discuss:

I give them props for having the balls to broach that subject.

Fox also has to get some credit for not pulling it, and instead letting it air.

Yeah, this was pretty ballsy for Fox to let them air this. I know, someone, Rupert Murdoch is pissed.

Maybe in his dying years he wants to make and do what's right. Rupert Murdoch that is, I mean they wouldn't show this on purpose cause that sh*t really goes down in other countries with the free trade slaves.

It was definitely dark, something I didn't expect and wondered why they had gone in this direction. Makes you wonder if the South Korea export stories are true.
