Don Hertzfeldt Does The Simpsons

Vitra goes to Africa, the Indienet, a people's history of coffee and more in our look at the web this week

To open their 26th season, Simpson’s creator Matt Groening invited Oscar-nominated independent animator Don Hertzfeldt to tackle their introductory couch sequence, something anyone familiar with The Simpsons knows changes with new each episode. And Hertzfeldt provided something beyond eerie and unsettling, in the most wonderful way possible. The two-minute intro envisions what The Simpsons would look like in its 800th season. It’s a weird, sci-fi world we hope we’ll all be around to watch in 774 years.
