Banksy, renown UK street artist, storyboarded and directed the extremely dark opening sequence of the last episode of The Simpsons, which featured Asian labour camps, animal cruelty, a decapitated dolphin head as a tape-gun and a starving unicorn for punching holes in CDs. You can watch it here in this New York Times article where Al Jean, an executive producer of the show, talks about getting Banksy to do the intro.

If like me, you don't live in the United States, the Hulu video in the article above will not work. Try here instead.
