Check Out The Most French Opening Ever For THE SIMPSONS
By Merrill Barr on March 6, 2014
If there’s one thing you gotta love about The Simpsons, it’s its willingness to go all out on those couch gags. Over the years, the opening (and sometimes entire episodes) has been taken over by everybody from Banksy to Lego to John K., and this week will see another out-there artist takeover everyone’s favorite animated suburban family.
In this super French style opening from Academy Award-nominated director Sylvain Chomet (The Triplets of Belleville), the gang is transformed into snail-eating, goose-torturing balls of hilarity. Even the gag at the end with Maggie firmly hiding in Homer’s butt leaves one in stitches.
As well as this clip, FOX has also released a featurette with this week’s gust star, Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe:
The Simpsons will air two all new back-to-back episodes this Sunday on FOX starting at 7:30/6:30c.
