Banksy draws attention to ‘Simpsons’
Sunday night’s controversial opening-credit stunt on “The Simpsons,’’ which showed animated Asian foreign workers piecing together a “Simpsons’’ episode in a sweatshop, was directed by famous graffiti artist Banksy, who put Boston on the counterculture map in May when he tagged buildings in Chinatown and Cambridge. We assume Banksy’s gag is a statement about reports that “The Simpsons’’ outsources some of its animation to South Korea. The sketch included an image of a young man using a chained-up unicorn to punch holes in “Simpsons’’ DVDs. Yikes. . . . Worth mentioning is that Sunday’s “Simpsons’’ episode was a parody of “Moneyball,’’ Michael Lewis’s baseball stats book-turned-movie that brought Brad Pitt to Boston to film scenes at Fenway Park last week. Lisa Simpson played a pint-size Billy Beane in the episode, crunching numbers to make Bart’s little league team No. 1.
