Yeah that's not how you record sounds from a video to your computer.

The banksy portrayal of the Korean animators was not intended to represent the truth in regards to the production of the Simpsons, but rather the use the Simpsons as a representation of how international business in general interacts with non-first world cultures/economies. At least, this is one reading of the banksy Simpsons intro.

My comment is in response to the description which I think is a response to the Simpsons intro banksy purportedly directed....

I took it more as a joke as "THIS IS WHAT SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVE" complete with unicorn, sad panda, etc. Of course, there's always the option that the artist just threw a bunch of things together with no real intention and people read their own silly interpretations into it.

Here's my interpenetration of the Banksy Intro. "I'm douchey artist who wants to be edgy and cool. Take that corporations."

Portaxx - 2010-10-12
Your "interpenetration"???

Hahaha. Oh Cena.

Banksy's intro was dumb, and this is completely dull, but you have to be Cena_mark to not see he was criticizing the sub-standard working conditions of the people who manufacture all the crap we wear, drive, and type on. And farming animation out to other countries is another cost-cutting method from the shitbags that hold all the purse strings in this country.

I always feel like I'm forced to play the cynic whenever people talk about Banksy, but he is really ludicrously overrated. He's a privately educated, upper-middle-class 40-year-old who adopts the manner of a renegade street artist so his substandard intellect and barely-formed political opinions get a free pass. I've met some of the people he pays to do his tagging for him in London- he doesn't even do that shit himself!

I was pleased when Charlie Brooker wrote this:

He may be ludicrously overrated, but couldn't you say that about almost every highly rated artist?

poorwill - 2010-10-12
Yes, you could. But you could also say that about Banksy.

I remember in the commentary on the episode a long time ago where they similarly portrayed the place where Itchy and Scratchy was animated as a slave labor camp, and the most protest came from the animation studio in Korea itself
