Banksy, Celebrated street artist Banksy has turned his talents to The Simpsons, creating an opening sequence with an Asian sweatshop.

The opening sequence of one-minute begins almost as usual, but labeled with Banksy sprayed through monuments of Springfield, and a mask of Bart writing “I must not write on the walls” on the walls of her classroom.

It then pans a dark factory in ruins, where dozens of workers cartoon family. Cats are shown being thrown into a wood chipper to create the filling for the good and Bart Simpson dolls. A unicorn, chained to the wall of the factory, is used to make holes on DVD.

The titles end with a grim picture of the logo of the owner of the series, 20th Century Fox, watched by reflectors, a guard tower and barbed wire fence.

It is not the first time the program has dealt a blow to Fox: the cartoon has parodied Fox News, while the network owner, Rupert Murdoch, has appeared on the show as a “billionaire tyrant.”

This is the first time an artist participating in the opening credits of the show, who is credited with the mark of most successful television ever. Al Jean, executive producer of The Simpsons, joked: “This is what you get from outsourcing.”

Banksy is said to have been inspired by reports that the characters in The Simpsons is animated in Seoul, South Korea.

The sequence is said to have been one of the best kept secrets in U.S. television – Comparable to the concealment of the identity of Banksy.

The episode, MoneyBart, made its U.S. debut last night and will appear in the United Kingdom on 21 October.
