Banksy, perhaps the most influential and acclaimed street artist of all-time, has officially made it to the mainstream. Solely responsible for making graffiti a respected art form, the anonymous Banksy directed the iconic opening theme and couch gag for The Simpsons. And it’s a wonder that 20th Century Fox approved it for broadcast.
Featuring Banksy’s trademark dark humor and social commentary, this Simpsons intro features decapitated dolphins, enslaved unicorns and child sweat shop workers. The show and intro were broadcast last night.[via]
