Sylvain Chomet brings The Simpsons couch opening to life

How fun. The Triplets of Belleville director Sylvain Chomet (part of production house th1ng) was asked to bring his signature style The Simpsons, for their iconic couch opening. This coming episode on March 9th will feature what you see below: A power outage leaves us looking at their blinking eyes. When the power comes back on, we're in a very Chomet-inspired world. How very French and lovely.
