In February 2011, Park made his first ever appearance, himself as an animated character in The Simpsons episode, “Angry Dad: The Movie”. His new Willis and Crumble short, Better Gnomes and Gardens borrows elements and themes from Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Lisa Simpson asks Park, in case he does not receive the Academy Award for Best
In late 2011, Park directed a music video for ‘Plain Song’- a song by Native and the Name, a Sheffield band led by Joe Rose, the son of an old university friend.
The video was filmed at Birkdale School, Sheffield, and Park also selected the track as one of his Desert Island Discs when he went on the show in 2011, which led to suggestions that Park was using his fame to give a friend a leg-up in his career.
Park denied these claims insisting it had become one of his favourite songs. The song and video can be found on YouTube.
In 2013, Park was involved in the British stage adaptation of Hayao Miyazaki’s animated film, Princess Mononoke.
