The Greatest Event In Television History

Paul Rudd did something funny.

For whatever reason, he's long had a dream of recreating, shot-for-shot, the opening titles of semi-funny eighties detective show Simon & Simon. Correction: It looks like this was more Adam Scott's idea than Paul Rudd's.

He did so. And then began promoting this as The Greatest Event In Television History.

They also did a "Behind the Scenes/Making of" tribute to their 2 minute clip, pumping it up, again, as the most amazing thing history. So of course it's hosted by Jeff Probst.

You know what's funny? I was just listening to the Simon & Simon theme earlier this week.

Anyway, the Making of this landmark event in the history of television is below. The recreation begins at 8:39. Well, that's where the countdown starts.

Plus, a side-by-side comparison of the recreation. The recreation stars Adam Scott from Parks & Recreation, and John Hamm from Mad Men.

Thanks to Just the Tip.
