The reality of the media landscape is that if, in 2016, you are going to mock IKEA’s DIY flat pack assembly, you had better do it perfectly, with the language-less guides having been the butt of stand-up routines since the late 1990s. And so The Simpsons, the long-running animated show you probably haven’t watch in a couple of years, enters the fray with a perfect couch gag.

Entitled Build Your Own Couch Gag, the short animated scene was created by animator Michal Socca, best known for the animated film The Prophet. Beautifully animated, the couch gag plays brilliantly with the show and the concept.
