One man’s ridiculous YouTube quest to improve television’s most iconic intros is unquestionably the greatest thing on the internets…
If you’re a regular Laser Time listener, you know we’re huge fans of TV show theme songs. Or at least we thought we were, because our devotion doesn’t hold a fucking candle to dotflist. This YouTube songster deserves the web equivalent of a Nobel Prize, as he’s taken it upon himself to reinterpret the theme songs of several dozen television shows with wholly original jams that could’ve easily found their way into the Drive soundtrack. And wouldn’t you know it? Each and every one isn’t a marked improvement!
Below are some of our favorites, but you should see them all soon before a handful of corporations ruin the fun with their inevitable YouTube copyright flags.
