The Simpsons "Anatomy" Couch Gag By Michal Socha
It seems like the quantity of high profile couch gags is getting exponentially higher as The Simpsons continues down it's...25th season? Drawing from the talent of critically acclaimed Polish animator Michal Socha, we're offered an impressionistic romp through Homer's brain. Red, black and white are the only colors at play during this interior exploration, similar to his award winning 2009 short called Chick.
This latest couch gag follows takes by the likes of Sylvain Chomet (Triplets Of Belleville) and even John K. of Ren and Stimpy fame. In a sense it seems like the classic couch gag might soon turn into a rite of passage for any established animator at this rate, offering different directors a chance to take their own stabs at the iconic opening.
