The Weirdest Couch Gag in the History of The Simpsons by Animator Don Hertzfeldt

donhertzfeldtsimpsons

The Simpsons recently tapped Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt to animate the opening title couch gag and, well, it’s as weird as you’d expect it to be if you’re familiar with his work. To be honest, it’s not really my thing, but I like how left field it is. The show has been unfunny for so long, can anything save it?

I’ve said it before, I think it would be cool if they allowed different artists to do entire episodes. Like the episode where they paid tribute to Hayao Miyazaki would have been so much cooler if it was entire episode produced by Studio Ghibli. The best thing they’ve done in recent years was that intro to the show by Banksy.

Watch Don Hertzfeldt’s weird couch gag animation below.

    so, uhm…half life 3 confirmed?

  • Joseph Luk

    its like any of the flash animations made by school kids from newgrounds in the early 2000s

  • Gabriel Hunter

    Simpsons is a mirror held up to America. If something is wrong with it (unfunny) it’s flaw is whats being reflected.

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants.
