Watch a Polish Animator’s Stunning Take on The Simpsons Couch Gag

The Simpsons has really been having fun with animation this season, especially with the opening. There was the Guillermo del Toro one, the Sylvain Chomet one, and The Hobbit one. Now they turned the couch gag over to Polish animator Michal Socha. The result is a hard-to-describe trip inside Homer's body. Drawn in an intentional flat style only using red, black, and white, Socha creates something that feels both like The Simpsons and like something totally unique. Be forewarned: It's kind of disgusting, but just in the way that human bodies are always disgusting.
