Watch: 'The Simpsons' Couch Gag Directed By Sylvain Chomet Plus 'True Detective' Parody

So, what are people going to do on Monday when “True Detective” is over and parodies will quickly become dated? Well, “Game Of Thrones” and “Mad Men” are right around the corner, but before that, The Yellow King needs to be found, and “The Simpsons” have done just that.

Okay, not quite, with the folks behind the show winking at fans by dropping Homer Simpson reclining with a sandwich, beer and a pair of antlers. Much more interesting is a new couch gag by “The Triplets Of Belleville” director Sylvain Chomet, which reinterprets America’s nuclear family through his distinct lens, and it’s pretty beautiful stuff. And following the Guillermo del Toro-helmed opening from last fall, we hope this is a trend that continues on the forever-running animated show.
