On last night’s episode of “The Simpsons,” the show’s traditional intro sequence and couch gag were replaced with a parody of the “Game of Thrones” opening. It wasn’t quite as mind-melting as the Banksy intro from 2010, but still, if you combine one of my favorite shows of all time with one of my favorite new shows, I will happily give you my undivided attention for 30 seconds. You know, to the extent anything gets my undivided attention considering we live in a world where you can just type “Prince GIFs” into Google and find dozens of them literally within seconds. It’s a miracle anyone gets anything done.
This isn’t the first time “The Simpsons” has spoofed the opening sequence from a Warming Glow favorite, as they also gave the Springfield treatment to “Mad Men” during their “Treehouse of Horror” episode from 2008. While I’m tempted to beg them to resist the temptation to go back to this well too often, I think I speak for all of us when when I say “FRESH PRINCE” INTRO OR GTFO. [crickets] What? Just me?
