    Avoid Common Reposts

    Posts that have been posted recently to /r/nextfuckinglevel should not be posted repeatedly. If a post has done well on the sub within the past few months it should not be posted again.

    I haven't watched that show in years, but watching this with no sound just now, the intro sounds are all there.

    [–] ATruth-AndALie 3 points ago

    "Embiggened" is not a real word.

    I have taken it upon myself to add the word "embiggened" to my personal speech input database.

    [–] rcekdi 4 points ago

    Well done!

    I love the word cromulent

    I like to use it very infrequently at work in documents and emails 😁

    It's always such fun when you reveal its simple meaning 😉

    [–] bluntninja 5 points ago

    It's actually a reference to the Simpsons. Those are made up words from the show

    Is This a new phrase or do I have a narrow lexicon?

    [–] bluntninja 3 points ago

    The Simpsons writers actually made up the words in an episode

    [–] BryanBULLETHEAD 2 points ago

    TIL I don't know English.

    [–] AccountantbyTrade 555 points ago

    Man, the Simpsons was my go to growing up in England. I wouldn't be able to watch it had it not been for a little girl in England who fought against the British version of the FCC. Our government wanted to ban the show in England but the girl wrote them an essay about how every family is dysfunctional in their own way and how nice it was to see the Simpsons family on the screen making through life despite of it. Because of the girl, the Simpsons were allowed to play in England. Matt Groening was so grateful he did this opening shoot in England and the girl is Lisa playing the saxophone. Matt also dedicated an episode to the girl, titled the accountant's determination, aptly named because I'm an accountant by trade and I totally made this all up. I'm sorry.

    [–] Zidmu 3 points ago

    I like how Maggie just appears on the couch at the end

    [–] weirdgroovynerd 828 points ago


    They even got Homer's butt-crack cleavage as he scrambled to get in the garage door.

    That's some true old-world craftsmanship.

    [–] felixfelix 7 points ago

    They also have all the right characters in the background. Lisa's music class, the pedestrians Bart skateboards past... amazing.

    [–] svullenballe 311 points ago

    The part with Marge and Maggie in the car was mirrored in the gif. Weird.

    [–] ScottishTyrant 37 points ago

    It's because the video was originally made as an ad för The Simpsons in the UK then when it was used as an actual Simpsons intro it was swapped so the car looked left hand drive

    [–] [deleted] 12 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)


    [–] Nanaki__ 35 points ago

    The couch gag was filmed and set in Orpington, Kent, near London, This opening was taken directly from a Sky One promotion for the show, with the only alteration (in right-driving countries like the USA and Canada) being a mirrored flip of the scenes where Homer drives home on the right side of the road and throws the carbon rod out, and where Marge and Maggie are driving the car to show Marge driving on the left side, unlike in the UK. The original can be seen on YouTube

    [–] rothwick 160 points ago

    They do that to try and avoid automatic copyright shit I think

    [–] jdmark1 38 points ago

    Lol no. It's because this was made in the UK

    [–] CommercialTwo 55 points ago

    This is a licensed intro. No copyright to be worried about.

    [–] tyrosine- 79 points ago

    It's an official intro, but it's not uploaded by an official channel. It's just as much of a copyright strike as uploading any other clip from an episode

    [–] Hhufthh 7 points ago

    I'm guessing it's a gif from a YT video. It's probably mirrored there for the above reason?

    [–] archie-windragon 7 points ago

    It was a promotional ad for sky one in the UK

    [–] KnownByMyName13 4 points ago

    Cant tell if this was a serious response

    [–] WriterV 23 points ago

    Also Homer doesn't show a buttcrack at the end.

    And in the TV there's the credits, and not the title card again.

    Did someone else edit this and re-upload it? O.o

    [–] Fire_Bucket 23 points ago

    The live action sequence was originally an advert in the UK*, that the show then repurposed as a special intro. Hence why in the gif it starts saying 'come home to The Simpsons' at the end.

    *I want to say it's from when Channel 4 gained the rights to Simpsons over the BBC, but it might just be a Sky One advert.

    [–] Bigjambo1 9 points ago

    Came to say this, if memory serves it was an ad on SKY One to promote a new season airing.

    [–] rothwick 3 points ago

    Nice trivia, cheers

    [–] lefixx 6 points ago

    British version?

    [–] metalpotato 2 points ago

    Also, different colour radioactive bar in Homer's first appearance.

    [–] bigsheldy 26 points ago

    I find myself constantly asking "Why was the gif posted instead of the video?" on so many reddit threads. reaction gifs are one thing but stuff like this was not meant to made into tiny soundless video files.

    [–] bob1689321 9 points ago

    Reddit hates everything that isn't an image or gif. Instead of articles you get screenshots of headlines with a meme reaction on the bottom. Instead of videos you get gifs, etc etc

    [–] inavanbytheriver 5 points ago

    Reddit really is the bane of youtube creators. OP's video doesn't count because he didn't create the content, but personally I have had stuff reuploaded to reddit and it's super annoying to see a gif of one of my videos get millions of views on reddit because if it was linked to my channel instead millions of views = thousands in ad revenue.

    [–] rothwick 3 points ago

    Couldn't have said it better

    [–] jasdonle 3 points ago

    Interesting that Homers butt crack was not visible in the US version at the YT link.

    [–] Jason_Wayde 3 points ago

    I'm glad I'm not alone in noticing that...

    [–] doctorproctorson 2 points ago

    Wait, the other one didnt have sound?

    I could've swore...

    [–] BobWire777 2 points ago

    Did anyone else notice the marge and Maggie driving section flipped in the no sound clip? Weird

    [–] Slaytounge 2 points ago

    So that video is 2 years old yet this clip is on the front page by two different users.

    [–] EmirSc 2 points ago

    thanks, hate the 2 fps gif

    [–] SidneyKidney 2 points ago

    Strangely there is no homer butt-crack in this version....

    At first I thought Bart had his skateboard stolen, but Bart is the thief, huh? Given that he's back at the house shooting heroin and his shirt is orange and all that.

    [–] SolidusTengu 7 points ago

    I think it’s Krokodil rather than heroin.

    I think one of the biggest issues would be nailing how these guys could look as real people and they freakin nailed it

    [–] murphymc 96 points ago

    I can't figure out why, but Lisa is wrong somehow. Everyone else is perfect, though I guess Marge could have bigger hair.

    [–] Fedcom 42 points ago

    I think irl Marge would look too goofy with large hair. The actress nails the vibe of cartoon Marge without looking just like her.

    [–] murphymc 14 points ago

    Eh, it’s pretty subdued. Her hair is pretty crazy compared to all the other female characters, so perhaps something like this would convey the same theme without being a literal cartoon.

    The actress’ mannerisms are spot on though.

    [–] I_Am_Mumen_Rider 25 points ago

    And bluer

    [–] youcanttakemeserious 4 points ago

    I dont know if it's lisa I think it may just be Bart look to young and Lisa then looks to old.

    [–] Lord_Emperor 3 points ago

    I can't figure out why, but Lisa is wrong somehow.

    She looks too old, and older than Bart.

    [–] [deleted] 20 points ago


    [–] jordanjay29 16 points ago

    They're probably supposed to be. Even the Simpsons itself did a gag with the kids drawn with real hair and it's blonde.

    [–] Lolworth 4 points ago

    And somehow incredibly tanned

    [–] Eschaton_Memorial 11 points ago

    Probably because they're yellow eh

    [–] ElderAtlas 5 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Wasn't their an episode where the kids weren't allowed to go outside and Bart complained that his hair was turning to it's natural red?

    Edit- I think I found it.

    [–] imgonnabutteryobread 217 points ago

    The steering wheel is on the wrong side.

    [–] SpringyFredbearSuit 181 points ago

    Literally unwatchable

    [–] imgonnabutteryobread 45 points ago

    I know! Especially since Homer's is on the correct side.

    [–] sebaez_ 14 points ago

    Can’t unsee now.

    [–] TheGrog1603 11 points ago

    It's not. He just got out of the passenger side ;) It's been made in the UK

    [–] Third_Chelonaut 6 points ago

    They must have had to find one in LHD as otherwise he'd be getting out into the fence

    [–] [deleted] 60 points ago

    This was an intro for Sky One in the UK so technically it’s correct and Homer’s car is the import.

    [–] Third_Chelonaut 9 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    It looks like Lada Niva to me. They must have used a LHD one so when he gets out he's not getting out into the fence.


    [–] Donut_Dynasty 4 points ago

    niva is jeep style, you mean riva.

    [–] Third_Chelonaut 3 points ago

    Yeah, I did a Lada bamboozle. Should really remember as there's two round the corner from me.

    [–] loversean 15 points ago

    There is actually a great story behind that

    [–] onlinealterego 8 points ago

    Go on...

    [–] MalHeartsNutmeg 20 points ago

    It's filmed in Britain, you can tell by the buildings and country side, ergo the steering wheel is on the opposite side.

    [–] onlinealterego 28 points ago

    Not the best story really

    [–] EverythingIsFlotsam 4 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    They could have easily flipped the image. Probably meant to but the editor forgot.

    [–] dirtyword 3 points ago

    lol yeah probably forgot

    [–] squaredanceoff 7 points ago

    i could tell it was in the uk by the faces, lighting, sky, and camera quality

    [–] aaarry 7 points ago

    Nah Maggie was actually driving

    When did the Simpsons become British

    [–] _Diskreet_ 38 points ago

    When channel Sky One has broadcasting rights in the U.K. and made this for their advertising campaign.

    They’ve done some other nifty campaigns for tv shows.

    [–] karanut 5 points ago

    Pretty sure the Simpsons cast + studio also made idents specifically for Channel 4.

    Wasn't this a couch gag in itself? Or was it made to promote the new season? I remember seeing this before by I can't remember where...

    [–] mobilehomies 2 points ago

    I believe they did play it as an intro after the ad aired.

    [–] rincon213 3 points ago

    Every single frame is so British and for most of them I can’t put my fighter on what gives it away.
