This Simpsons Intro Will Legitimately Give You Nightmares

D'oh-n't watch it if you ever want to sleep again.

If you've seen the first airing of The Simpsons on the Tracey Ulman show, then you'll know how nightmare-inducing the show's artistic origins truly are.

But we don't remember it being this batshit scary...

As you've probably ascertained by now, this isn't a bonafide piece of vintage Simpsons footage. It's actually a project by French artist Yoann Hervo called 'WEIRD SIMPSONS VHS'.

Which is probably a good thing, because this intro would have seriously warped our childhoods if it was real.

To see how the original pilot really looked, watch the video below...
