Hilarious Real-Life ‘Simpsons’ Opening

I admit it: I’ve stood in line for each Lord of the Rings film, own most Harry Potter movies and even saw Twilight (and New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn—don’t judge me!). The truth is I love it when fantasy characters and locations are made real, which is why I love this live-action Simpsons show opener.

Advertising agency Devilfish created the 1-minute-long intro using real people and a startlingly accurate recreation of Springfield to capture what the TV classic would look like in the flesh. Catch real-life Homer at his job, Marge and Maggie on the road and and some impressive skateboard skills brought to you by one Bart Simpson.

Watch the cartoon and real-life versions side-by-side and compare.
