Simpsons Couch Gag Analyzed

Great analysis of the Simpsons couch gag (see below for the clip if you haven't come across it, though clearly you're on the internet right now so you certainly have) from Jonathan Gray. Linda Holmes disagrees with those who says it is subversive: "Has this bit led to more discussion of outsourcing and sweatshops, or more discussion of The Simpsons and Banksy?"

Dave Itzkoff has a Q&A with Banksy, and producer Al Jean talked to EW and to Dave Itzkoff.

Alexia Tsotsis analyzes the online life of the clip, which is now only (legally) available on Hulu, after Fox demanded it be pulled from Banksy's own YouTube page. Sounds like a good idea for next week's couch gag.
