This Time Adam Scott Recreated the 'Bosom Buddies' Intro



From iwatchstuff, As Adam Scott has already made clear across three specials, when he says he's making "The Greatest Event in Television History," he means it--even if he also means he's making "a shockingly-faithful shot-for-shot recreation of a largely-forgotten '80s TV intro." Last night brought his fourth installment of televised greatness, and it may well be his greatest Greatest Event since the Simon and Simon Intro.  With Paul Rudd, Gillian Jacobs, Aidy Bryant, Billy Joel, and others, he's remade the Bosom Buddies opening, an intro matched in overly-elaborate setups only by the show's cross-dressing conceit itself.

It makes me want to revisit that show! Their monkeying around is worthy of The Monkees!

The internet is so awesome.

Ha, Landshark.

The whole thing was pretty funny - and you're right, JSP, now I want to watch the show too!

I would say that monkeying tops the Monkees monkeying. I watched a bunch of The Monkees a while ago and found their antics to be mostly aided by wacky editing and sound effects, and I thought they were actually pretty poor antics.

Yes, Octo, but their music videos (and music)are awesome!

I love her Vaaaa-aaaa-aaaaa-aalerie!
