Banksy Does Depressing Simpsons Opening Title Sequence

I think we can all agree that The Simpsons stopped being the arbiter of cultural relevance it once was, like, a few years ago but this opening title sequence, story-boarded and directed by anonymous UK provocateur Banksy, takes self-deprecating satire to whole new levels of funny, brave, dark and sad - and ultimately, should be applauded. Really. It's surprising this even aired at all and marks the first time (in a while) I've felt an emotion other than mild amusement, silent rage or indifference while watching the show. I mean, perhaps there's hope yet for these four fingered relics of zeitgeist-capturing television. That, or Banksy's a genius and can do whatever he wants. I think Bansky is a genius and can do whatever he wants.
