The opening credits of the Simpsons brilliantly recreated from stock footage
As if it weren’t enough to be able to produce comedy gold like ‘The Dolmio Family doing the ‘Funny how?’ scene from Goodfellas’, the brilliant Matt Highton also has an uncanny knack for recreating TV show credits using cleverly edited stock footage.

Amazing, right? Having the original for comparison proves how good he is.
His latest edit lovingly recreates the opening sequence from The Simpsons, and it’s fabulous.
See for yourself.
