French Simpson couch gag by Sylvain Chomet

You guys know Sylvain Chomet. He is the genious behind L’illusionniste and Les triplettes de Belleville. He has also been honored with the making of an alternate couch scene for The Simpsons intro.

I love everything about this bit. Especially the self-deprecating humour, always a favourite. I also love Sylvain Chomet’s look into the world and the human nature. There’s always a sense of nostalgia mixed with a very critical eye towards people and society that observes and describes with no judgement. Just honest understanding and yet beauty in every shot and expression. He draws his characters with love, he sees people with a need to decode and portray, not to judge, I think. Love him, love him, love him.

Don’t forget to check out the making of!
