The Greatest Event in Television History

Damn, sometimes you watch greatest unfold before your eyes. Such was the case with last night’s Adult Swim special. The skit was hosted by Jeff Probst and took viewers on a “behind the scenes” look at Jon Hamm and Adam Scott’s attempt to create a shot-by-shot remake of the introduction to the 80s CBS detective show ‘Simon & Simon‘. Paul Rudd pitched to direct and there’s an absurd lunacy to this that defies logic.

I’m fairly certain Hamm and Scott’s efforts with “The Greatest Event in Television History” will be regarded as one of 2012’s greatest comedic achievements. Sadly, you have to watch it over at Adult Swim, so click away and get to it.

Update: And here it is for your viewing pleasure.
