A Bunch of Famous Street Artists Will Cameo on ‘The Simpsons’


Think about the last time that The Simpsons made headlines for something other than ugly salary negotiations — it was that Banksy-helmed opening credit sequence back in 2010. Perhaps in an effort to recapture some of that art world relevancy, the Fox animated series plans to bring on Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Kenny Scharf and Robbie Conal for a March 4th episode that’s cleverly titled “Exit Though the Kwik-E-Mart.”

“The story line is great,” writes Fairey on his website,” and they were kind enough to indulge a couple of my dialogue suggestions designed to make the social commentary more pointed (even though I had to make fun of myself to do so).” It sounds like this could actually be interesting.
