The Simpsons, brought to you by Banksy

British street artist Banksy has directed an opening sequence of The Simpsons that screened across America last night.  Included in the minute-long introduction is a sweatshop scene involving decapitated dolphins and starving unicorns, allegedly inspired by reports that the show outsources the bulk of its animation to a company in South Korea.  This is the first time an artist has directed the opening credits and Simpsons Executive Producer Al Jean joked that “This is what you get when you outsource.”
