The Horror Of 554 Simpsons Couch Gags All Going Off At Once

Here's 25 years' worth of Simpsons couch gags. All playing at the same time. You (by which I mean your ears) have been warned.

The horror.

The collective lurching death dirge -- as though 25 years of pop culture suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced -- weirdly reminds me of the noise Futurama's Hypnotoad makes. COINCIDENCE? Probably.

Further coincidence: the same YouTuber, Omni Verse, did a video of 140 simultaneous Futurama episodes. That is to say, all of them.

I reiterate: the horror.

What's your favourite Simpsons opening gag? Aside from the Banksy one. That's everybody's favourite these days. I'm trusting you to be hipper/snobbier than that.

Thanks, The Verge.

    Honestly... sounds like an arcade

    Remember them??

    As they majority started to go black it was easy to notice a couple of duplicates.

      There was a heap that were actually used a bunch of times, like that one with all the dancing and stuff.

    Ah the circus opening, my most hated of openings. Not only was it annoying, it also meant the episode would be shorter by 30 seconds or so (a long time in animation). You can't beat a classic Monty Python foot though

    Interesting how you can distinguish some of the words and sounds when looking at a particular frame, but with eyes closed it is impossible.

      What you see can alter what you are hearing. Interesting phenomenon.

        Yes I understand sight can influence sound, I'm not sure what the bias is called though but it is very interesting indeed. I noticed while watching a particular frame that the surrounding frames sound bled into what I was trying to focus on.

        I guess I'm curious to know if you can train this in some capacity, and whether it would have a positive effect on a persons ability to follow multiple conversations at a time (processing visual clues and not just sound). For example, It's quite difficult to hear three conversations in a ballroom full of people.

        I saw an article recently (I can't remember if it was on Gizmodo/Lifehacker or Reddit), It played a heavily distorted audio clip and then told you some words. When it played it again since you know what which words are said, you can make it out very clearly through the distortion. Had a search but couldn't find it.

        I don't know if I had a point here.. It's just interesting to me I suppose.
