Watch The Simpsons Couch Gag Triplets of Belleville-ized

The Simpsons has had success over the last few years from playing with their classic opening, whether it is using it to parody (like The Hobbit one) or handing it over to a notable artist (like Guillermo del Toro’s fantastic horror one). This Sunday there will be another example of the latter, when renowned French director and animator of such films as The Triplets of Belleville, Sylvain Chomet, takes over the couch gag. Did you catch the part where we said he’s French? Because the gag is as French as a cigarette-smoking frog eating cheese in an Eiffel Tower made of baguettes.
