FOX is calling for fans of The Simpsons to submit some ideas for the famous “couch gag” at the end of the opening credits.
The winner get to see their idea brought to life during the season finale, and a visit The Simpsons animation studio (do they get royalties or Writer’s Guild accreditation?)
FOX tells fans, “Your idea needs to be 2-D animation; it must be 30 seconds or shorter; it can’t have dialogue; it can’t have music; it can’t have brands or commercials; it must conform to broadcast standards; and it must use all five family members. Other than that, the only limit is your imagination! (Welcome to the world of corporate creativity.)”
But sadly for I also found this in the Rules:
“Entrant must be a legal resident physically residing within the forty-eight (48) contiguous United States or the District of Columbia (void in AK, HI and where restricted or prohibited by law).”
