‘The Simpsons’ Executive Producer Al Jean on Banksy’s Opening Credit Sequence

Good interview with Al Jean by Dave Itzkoff:

Q: One of the things Banksy is known for is disguising his identity. How can you be sure that you were dealing with the real him?

A: The original boards that we got from him were in his style and were certainly by an extremely proficient artist. We were dealing with the person that represented him making the movie. I haven’t met him, I don’t even know what he looks like, except what the Internet suggests. And he’s taken credit for it now so I’m pretty sure it’s him.
