The Simpsons intro remade in a hella weird 90s VHS style

Yeah this has done the rounds this week, but we can’t resist. Hey, it’s Friday, and we love The Simpsons. If you’ve not seen it already, this is a very weird, bad-trip type project that reworks The Simpsons intro sequence in a trashy, 90s VHS video style that’s all about making things in Springfield a little more dystopian than they should be. Directed by Yoann Hervo and worked on by a team including Huge Moreno and sound designer Florian Calmer, the animation uses the show’s usual intro narrative but things are pretty warped and odd: faces are stretched, burning tyres abound and the couch is left eerily deserted. Peculiar and perfect stoner-boy fodder for the weekend, if you’re into that sort of thing.
