Video of the Day
The Simpsons Opening Re-Enacted In Real Life
April 24, 2013

No doubt about it, 'The Simpsons' is one of the greatest TV shows of all time.

27 Prime Time Emmy Awards, the longest-running American sitcom, and the longest-running American animated program.

Oh, and in 2009, it surpassed Gunsmoke as the longest-running American prime time, scripted television series.

Well, the video at the top is a brilliant commercial from Britain's Sky Television promoting 'The Simpsons'.

Except the opening of the show is a re-enactment that imagines what the animated intro might look like in real life with real people.

It was created several years ago but we figured a lot of folks on this side of the pond might not have seen it.
