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!)

Stop What You’re Doing And Watch The Hell Out Of This of the Day

The most moving lip dub of Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure” performed by a homeless man holding two Kermit puppets you will see today, guaranteed.

UPDATE: So yeah, apparently this dude is an actor of some sort and not actually homeless (though, maybe? I’m sure there are homeless actors). Still, kudos to this guy for not making this about him but instead focusing on the important cause of getting as many people indoors as possible.

Only in America of the Day

West Coast sub shop chain “Cheba Hut” challenged sandwich lovers in Oregon to smash away 32 oz of ranch dressing for a chance to win $300 and free subs for a year.

Everyone lost of course!
