No, you didn’t get a touch of space madness watching The Simpsons Sunday night. Matt Groening and company just happened to commision another famous artist to animate their own couch gag. We’ve already seen Banksy’s take but there’s a possibility John Kricfalusi‘s might be even more disturbing. Kricfalusi is best known for his hit 1990s Nickelodeon series Ren & Stimpy and has since been doing music videos and various other animated work.
