Banksy Storyboards ‘The Simpsons’ Opening Couch Gag

While this is primarily TV related I am posting it anyway since the street artist known as Banksy had his profile elevated several notches this year with his direction of the most likely-faux documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop, and continuing the message adopted by that film, Banksy was invited to storyboard the opening couch gag for “The Simpsons.”

The gag, once you watch it is … I’m not sure “shocking” is the appropriate word, but when all things are considered it is shocking to see such a thing on a major network given its content. Then again, Fox has pretty much had to give up on censoring such material considering they house both “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy,” both shows known for taking shots at “the man.”
