Maybe we should watch Adult Swim more often instead of going to bed early, but thankfully we live in the wonderful world of YouTube. Late last Thursday night, the network aired "The Greatest Even In Television History" and featuring a gallery of our favorite people, and while it's a pretty awesome concept, it's even better because it lives up to the promise.

Adam Scott Jon Hamm The Greatest Event In Television History

Maybe we should watch Adult Swim more often instead of going to bed early, but thankfully we live in the wonderful world of YouTube. Late last Thursday night, the network aired "The Greatest Even In Television History" and featuring a gallery of our favorite people, and while it's a pretty awesome concept, it's even better because it lives up to the promise.

Hosted by Jeff Probst, this little comedy short is a behind-the-scenes look at Adam Scott and Jon Hamm recreating the opening credit sequence to "Simon & Simon" as directed by Paul Rudd (who in turn is inspired by Gus Van Sant's "Psycho," of course). We're not sure what else to tell you without ruining the jokes, but needless to say, this is pretty damn hilarious and awesome with game cameos from an assortment folks including Kathryn Hahn, Megan Mulally and Paul Scheer. Watch below followed by the original opening credit sequence.
