This reinterpretation of the opening credits to “The Simpsons” as early video game-style pixel art, complete with an appropriately glitchy soundtrack, is just wonderful. Via cartoonbrew.com.
Update: As reported by The Sydney Morning Herald, the producers of “The Simpsons” will use this video as the opening to this Sunday’s episode.
Twelve hours after the video was uploaded Ivan received an email from the show’s creators, asking him to call them straight away.
‘The email went to my spam folder, so I actually thought it was a hoax,’ said Ivan.
After calling the number Ivan found out the creators actually wanted to use their video to open the next episode of The Simpsons this Sunday at 8pm in America.
