Couch Gag of the Day

Tonight’s episode of The Simpsons, MoneyBART, featured a dark, disturbing couch gag storyboarded and directed by Bristol-born street artist Banksy.

According to Wooster, this is the first time “an artist has been invited to storyboard part of the show.”

Banksy took a swipe at the Simpsons’ signature chalkboard gag when he visited New Orleans in 2008.

UPDATE: Fox took down the YouTube clip (natch), so I’ve updated the embed with Hulu’s code. Apologies to our International readers, who may not be able to view it.

UPDATE 2: Hooray! The YouTube embed is back up with Fox’s blessing. (thanks eric!)
