Stumble Findings: Simpsons intro by Banksy taken off Youtube by Fox, allowed back up.

For those of you who don't have a TV or don't watch TV, then this is a must see intro to the Simpsons made by British graffiti artist Banksy. Think what you want about the Simpsons or of Banksy, but you have to admit that this is one thought-provoking intro--and frankly, I'm surprised the let it go on air in the first place.



To add another twist to this story, Fox apparently had the videos of the intro taken down on youtube, only to post them back up later.



What?



It seems Mr. Murdoch  hasn't heard about the Streisand Effect...


Anyway, here's the video, along with a link to TechCrunch's article about the whole fiasco:

  2. I saw this earlier; I still can't figure out how Fox gets so picky about what it wants seen and not seen.

  9. Yeah, Fox messed up on this, they should have done one thing or another, not switched around. Now they just look (more) incompetent.

    Glad you guys liked!
