According to Wooster.com, elusive street artist Banksy directed and storyboarded the opening to the show last night, which featured a dark portrayal of laborers in Asian countries working on "Simpsons" animation and merchandise. Banksy's tag can also be found on several Springfield landmarks throughout the opening.
The intro is a far cry from typical "Simpsons" fare and features some very disturbing commentary, including a dying unicorn enslaved to punch holes in the middle of "Simpsons" DVDs.
The maker of that episode opening got positive feedback for being so self-ironic. The opening is a response to press reports which said that a part of the Simpsons production is going to South Korea.
