Banksy's intro on The Simpsons leads new videos

 
So first off, who here is a Simpsons fan? It was by far my favorite show growing up and it is still amazing to see its continued success for another generation of youngin's. I could go on about my love for The Simpsons but the reason you see it up above is because of the famous graffiti artist Banksy, who directed the storyboard of the extended intro that aired last night. It has in turn sparked debate and controversy with Banksy's shedding of light on sweatshops. The intro goes from side-splitting laughs to the stark contrast of the harsh realities of low-paid sweatshop workers. Certainly an eye-raising choice for Banksy and The Simpsons creators as the added storyboards are far from funny. In talking with Maks G about this video earlier today, he said this video "raises awareness in some shape or form... like all of Banksy's work does". I couldn't agree more, as even though sweatshops have been documented for a good minute now, Banksy used the outlet of The Simpsons to surely reach minds that haven't yet been exposed. I think it is a dope intro and a startling one given its placement on The Simpsons, which makes it that much more powerful. Let's face it: it's hard not to have an opinion after watching this, as the video has in fact sparked quite a discussion on Twitter (currently trending in Chicago), so let us know what you think!
