Jon Hamm, Adam Scott Are Mad Men in “Simon & Simon” Opening Remake


I don’t know why, but Adam Scott has directed himself and Jon Hamm in a remake of the “Simon & Simon” opening sequence. It’s from the Adult Swim channel. Paul Rudd plays the director of the sequence, which costs around $10 million. Gus van Sant and Megan Mullally make appearances. The whole thing is a goof, and pretty funny. There’s also a making of segment that precedes the actual video, hosted by Jeff Probst.The making of is longer than the actual video.

Tagged as “The Greatest Event in Television History,” the whole thing runs as the main video on our home page. Some people sure do have a lot of time–and money– on their hands. Idle minds are indeed the devil’s workshop.

PS Gerald McRaney works all the time. But whatever happened to Jameson Parker? Please let us know.
