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.
