The most disturbing Simpsons intro ever

Simpsons intro

This is definitely the weirdest Simpsons intro ever!

In case you've never seen an episode, at the start of each show the Simpson family gather on the couch in some unique way. 

This one is VERY different!

"Academy Award-nominated animator/filmmaker Don Hertzfeldt answers the question of what it would look like if THE SIMPSONS went far, far into the future!" reads the description on Youtube. 

It's hard to say exactly what point is being made in the wild little short, but it sure is different to what we're used to seeing on the Simpsons!

This helpful Youtube comment does a good job of explaining it:

"For those that don’t get it, this is a surreal short criticizing how shows lose their quality over time," writes Jeff Smith. 

"Homer finds a time warping remote that first sends him to the original seasons, then fast forwards to a future where The Simpsons is a hollow shell of itself."

"The characters repeat their catchphrases and command the audience to buy merchandise."

"Homer sees a window, triggering memories of when the show was more genuine, and feels sad when he returns to the bastardized world that animator Don Hertzfeldt has imagined." 

The clip was never aired in an actual episode.
