Fox Allows Banksy’s Simpsons Intro Back onto YouTube Following Takedown

International viewers rejoice! A lot of people were upset yesterday when Banksy’s dark, scathing Simpsons intro was pulled from YouTube, forcing viewers to watch it on the U.S. only-Hulu. While Fox has been widely blamed for this takedown and may or may not have had a hand in it, it’s possible that this was one of YouTube’s infamous automated video takedowns. In any event, the video is back up on YouTube now, where Canadians and The Simpsons‘ own South Korean animators (who showrunner Al Jean insists aren’t exploited like the animators in Banksy’s video) will be free to watch it.
