Watch 13 of the internet's best 'Simpsons' videos

The Verge community — that's you — is currently helping us review every episode of The Simpsons. We've also asked several Vox staffers to contribute their thoughts on the show's legacy.

Matt Groening has produced over 550 episodes of The Simpsons. Adding in the feature-length film, that makes more than 12,000 minutes of Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa to watch. That being said, if you somehow still haven't gotten your Simpsons fix with FXX's twelve-day marathon, here are some of the best Simpsons videos to watch that aren't episodes.

    The opening credit couch gags have never shied away from making elaborate cultural references or outsourcing the direction to other artists, but in 2010, the show managed to track down graffitti artist Banksy to direct this legendary intro. The result is a darkly comedic commentary on the process of creating The Simpsons, all ending in a major jab at 20th Century Fox. It's perfect.
