Remember the '80s detective show "Simon & Simon"? Well, you're in luck, because Thursday night, in what Adult Swim billed as "The Greatest Event In Television History," Jon Hamm, Adam Scott, Paul Rudd, Paul Scheer and Jeff Probst teamed up for a hilariously bizarre mini-mockumentary about their multi-million dollar mission to recreate the show's opening credit sequence, shot-for-shot.

The project was written by Scheer, co-directed by Scott and features Hamm in a mustache, delivering over-the-top dialogue like, "I've loved 'Simon & Simon' for along time ... It's a seminal television program, and the fact that we get to work on this homage, it's just important."

Rudd plays the remake's director. Under his direction, the remake came in at $9 million over budget and he admits that he meant to cast Scott's "Parks & Rec" co-star Aziz Ansari instead of him. And after a 10-minute mockumentary about the making of the remake, we see that they actually succeeded in replicating the show's opening credit sequence. And it is glorious.
