The Simpsons. October 2010.

Banksy was credited with the opening couch gag for the 2010 The Simpsons episode “MoneyBart,” depicting people working in deplorable conditions and using endangered or mythical animals to make both the episodes cel-by-cel and the merchandise connected with the program. His name appears several times throughout the episode’s opening sequence, spray-painted on assorted walls and signs. Fox sanitised parts of the opening “for taste” and to make it less grim. In January 2011, Banksy published the original storyboard on his website. According to Banksy, the storyboard “led to delays, disputes over broadcast standards and a threatened walk out by the animation department.” Executive director Al Jean jokingly said, “This is what you get when you outsource.” Source: Wikipedia

Street Art UK. 2010

After Banksy’s tour of the US following the premier and promotion of “Exit through the Gift shop”, he was back in the UK for the summer and fall of 2010. He also visited Glastonbury, where he stencilled the crazy hippies and filmed a prank with Prince Charles.

“Exit through the gift shop” at Sundance film festival. January 2010

The film premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival on 24 January 2010 and was later nominated to the Oscars and the BAFTAs for Best Documentary Feature. The synopsis was described the following way on the official website:

“This is the inside story of Street Art – a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide. Exit Through the Gift Shop follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world’s most infamous vandals on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results.  One of the most provocative films about art ever made, Exit Through the Gift Shop is a fascinating study  of low-level criminality, comradeship and incompetence.  By turns shocking, hilarious and absurd, this is an  enthralling modern-day fairytale… with bolt cutters.”
